NO. Stay out of it. My next door neighbors bought a house w Tweakers, meth sold out of that house. I don't think cooked in there but can't say for sure. I also know that for FIVE. months. there was no running water to that house. With at least 5-6 people there all the time. REO, bought by an agent, fixed and flipped. New neighbors aunt is RE agent. I would think that by now it should all be known but it's none of my GD business.
Now, if that house ever went on the market and I didn't buy it myself, and buyers were mine, I'd tell them everything I'm aware of and strongly advise complete investigation.

Changing my answer now, and getting 'in the middle' would not be something that I would do.  Again, I don't represent either buyer nor seller, and my answer does not change.  Since the Inspector did not catch 'whatever', maybe 'whatever' is now fixed, as opposed to 'well covered'.  Will read replies below though!

If there is a significant defect, however well covered it is, the buyers WILL find out by themselves. And then they can decide how to handle it.

Now, IF it is a life-endangering safety problem and IF not telling the new owners could wind up in their death/ultimate destruction, then of course tell them.

What's the defect we are discussing?

I did not see yet the first Q, but it happened to my neighbors recently and they hired a lawyer to sue everyone( seller and the inspector)  and seems they are going to win a lot of money.

I tell my buyers to meet their potential neighbors and ask about the area. If I were approached in this way, I'd tell them to have an inspector check out the issue you heard a rumor about.  

If I weren't approached, I'm not sure I'd volunteer anything.

Not being an agent, my answer may be different than others. I would not be in a hurry to race over and involve myself, but if I became friends with the owners over time, I would eventually mention that I had heard X or that I saw X and am glad that it was repaired. Let them take it from there.

If the agent knew about it and didn't say anything, they should be sued and disciplined.
