I purchased a property through a land agreement. I wont get

I purchased a property through a land agreement. I wont get the deed in my name until the property is paid in full. I need a septic permit to get a building permit. In order to get a septic permit I need the deed to be in my name. I don't want to use the money I have saved up to build my house to pay off the property. The owners do not want to get the septic permit in their name to help me out in fear of any negative impacts this may cause down the line. We have a purchase agreement. Is there a way we can add an addendum that would allow me to assume any and all responsibility should something go wrong down the line before I finish paying off the property?

We(seller) sold our property in Gatlinburg TN to a buyer on

We(seller) sold our property in Gatlinburg TN to a buyer on a land contract. They paid our mortgage for 2 years prior to closing. We maintained the insurance on the property. Buyers had already occupied the home as "renters" and had made improvments. 3 weeks prior to closing, the home was damaged in the Tennessee wildfires. A claim was filed with our insurance since we were still the owners. The buyers, since they were on site, dealt with the repairs. Upon receipt of the insurance payments, we signed those checks over to the "buyers" for payment on repairs. The property was closed and ownership transfered. Now the buyers are short on money for additional repairs and they want us to pay them the deductable amount. We gave them all proceeds from the insurance settlement. Do we now also owe them the deductable amount?
