In Monopoly Deal, if I'm forced to sell off one of my properties, and that property is part of a complete set with a House on it, what happens to the House?

I would think it should be discarded, but this came up today and I wasn't sure what the proper ruling was.

This question is probably too old to be answered again, but the accepted answer sounds incorrect according to several sources.

If a property set has a House/Hotel on it and the property set is broken up, the House/Hotel is moved to the owner's bank, per Hasbro.

If you break up a full set that has houses and hotels, those houses and hotels have to go into your bank.

And you probably had stop playing. But might be useful for new players like me :)

Excellent - thanks for your research. – Matt Dillard May 12 '11 at 17:22

During your turn, the House can be moved to any other set.

If you don't have one, or it isn't your turn then just leave the House on the table in play for you until you are able to attach it to a set again.

That makes perfect sense; once the card has been played, there's no point in penalizing the player just because the card is not relevant for a little while (especially in a simple game like Monopoly Deal). – Matt Dillard Oct 22 '10 at 4:25
