When my toilet backed up this past weekend, I called a plumber... and low and behold our system is not hooked up to the street - it is a septic system! I purchased my home 2 1/2 years ago and the seller never disclosed having a septic system, listed the house as Town Sewer and on top of that probably never maintained the system. The city cannot even find any record of my address having a septic tank, therefore the work was done illegally. I am sick to my stomach! Is there anything that the seller could be liable for... removal, upgrade, etc? I have twins and I cannot imagine what they have been breathing in - the plumber that was here said it has easily been neglected for over 10 years! Any info or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
