The contract reads "HOA approved septic system to be installed post closing but no later than...." This is a gated lake community in rural Ste. Genevieve county, MO. The hoa must approve all septic systems prior to the purchase of a property, but all new systems must be approved by the state before the health dept will permit installation. So, the health department permitted the installation of this septic system based on the misinformation that was given that the home had only 2 bedrooms.
Thanks for your help. What would be the best way, in your opinion, to try and resolve this situation? The broker used both by me and by the previous owner in the transaction also worked as a developer of the community, and he was responsible for ensuring that the contract went as planned. I was thinking about talking with him to see if he could mediate a resolution with the previous owner rather than taking the approach of litigation. Is there any danger in this approach? If it is advisable to take such an approach, is there anything legal that I should be aware of before doing so?
