How much is septic permit and should land sellers provide it?
We have an offer in on 3 acres. The land has a perc test that passed, but no actual septic permit. In our offer we asked that the septic approval process and permit be provided by seller as part of the purchase deal. They counter offered saying they will not provide the septic approval/permit.
Our agent is saying this is a 'must have' to sell the property/the seller is expected to have this in place. We don't understand why their agent is not educating them this is actually the case... Is this actually a 'must have' or is our agent incorrect? Obviously we would not purchase the land without having a septic approval; but the question is really if this is something a seller is typically expected to pay for and provide. (Also, what is the approximate cost?)
