You will not be able to get it waived.. I did a FHA deal similiar to USDA and we had to get approval from FHA (my sellers had to pay for a survey ($400) , get something in writing from the supervisor of the township saying it was grandfathered and information from a septic inspector and send it off to FHA.

It took over 6 months to get the approval but we got it approved (grandfathered) and went to settlement

I am would think that you may be able to do all these items and send it to USDA to see what you can do.

No They put that rule in place to protect the homeowners . So getting them to bend on it would not be likely.

My experience with USDA is that they have many rules and have few that they bend, break or ignore. My guess is no.
