Thank you for the Wave~.....(Responding to my questions).
Here in California, one may have legal recourse, even though purchase of property was by way of "foreclosure"....thus, with your difficulties, I needed to obtain further information - and I thank you kindly for your willingness to answer my questions.
Please know that I am unable to offer you direct information concerning plumbing, my apologies. I do see, however, that the previous specialists have offered such information.
As far as legalities are concerned, you may wish to contact a "city" field supervisor and explain your situation. I am concerned for you being that you were informed that you "had no drain field" thus you spent $4,000 to connect to the city's sewage system.
My concern is that this (possibly) should have resolved the issue and the plumber who advised you of said fact - should be the one to correct the matter....or at least be the one to offer you further assistance in which to resolve it. It may be that the plumber's advice (individual and/or plumbing company) was in error - for which he/they may be held liable .(which is a different matter .....has nothing to do with you purchasing under foreclosure) this may be seen as property damage....I don't know for certain - I'm basically throwing things out here - in order to let you know that, in order to protect your rights, you may wish to consider investigating this further in a "legal" sense. Anything is possible!
I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you wish for further information.
I do hope you are able to resolve this issue quickly.
My best to you.
Peace, Love & Happiness,
The Mystic Wave
