I am a member of the State Bar of California, the Bar of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside Counties), and the California and National Associations of Realtors.
Every residential sale provides a "REAL ESTATE TRANSFER DISCLOSURE STATEMENT." If your disclosure failed to mention any of these issues (septic tank, etc.), then the seller may be liable for misrepresentation of the property's condition. Similarly, a real estate agent has a duty to make a visual inspection of the property. Failure to provide you with the agent's disclosure re the visual inspection can create liability for the agent.
So, the answer is, yes, dependent upon the actual facts surrounding your purchase. That's about as far as I can go without actually reviewing your entire transaction.
If you need more personal attention than can be provided in this public forum, I can arrange to send you my personal contact info, and we can take the discussion offline into a confidential setting. Please let me know if you're interested.
If not, then I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer (click 3, 4 or 5 stars) -- otherwise, Justanswer retains your entire payment, and I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.
Note: If you are presented with an offer for a phone consultation, which may appear to have been sent by me, please know that it is an automated website offer, and that I do participate in this Justanswer program. If you would like to correspond with me directly, whether by phone, email or otherwise, then instead of accepting the phone call offer, simply type to me that you would like my direct contact info, and I will send you a specific offer for that purpose.
