Re: To buy a camp or not
If you are a serious buyer, the seller will often help pay for a perc. Its worth it to them to spend a few hundred bucks to get a deal done. Some may disagree, but the last thing I would do is call the sewer guy and ask questions. In my experience, that puts a red flag over your name. I went through one not long ago that had a good perc from years ago. I did the right thing and called them. They came out, refused to honor the old perc., and I had to start all over. Legally, I should have just proceeded with the old approved one. lesson learned. My old cottage had a french drain for 75 years for grey water. I sold it as is, and it still has it today because noone asked if it was " OK ". Keep a tight lip on those matters !
