The dispute over Maryland’s infamous snake house won’t be heard by a jury.

According to the Capital Gazzette, the realtor and owners reached a settlement for a confidential amount, meaning the case won’t be going before a jury. The lawsuit arose last year after Jeff and Jody Brooks¬†found a snake infestation inside the Annapolis home. They accused the realtor of withholding information, especially since previous owners moved out due to snakes.

It was around this time of year that an inspection showed there were no snakes in the home. But once the weather warmed up, the reptiles began slithering out of the walls. The black rat snakes aren’t venomous, but the house was quickly deemed unfit for children. Plus, who wants to live with snakes?

The couple found the full extent of the problem after hiring a snake inspector. Just another thing to think about when buying a home.
