As far as the septic system goes, you should also have that inspected. If it is not working properly it could cost $30,00 to replace it. Also if you use an inspection company like mine that is certified if you receive passing results for the septic and the oil tank you can purchase "insurance" on both. The septic insurance is for $25,000 and the premium is about $17/month. The oil tank policy covers $100,000 in clean-up cost is less than $200/year.
If the seller refuses to fulfill the obligations in the agreement of sale, he may be in default and you may act accordingly.
By the way, in the State of Pennsylvania, ALL real estate is sold "as is". There is no warranty, implied or otherwise, unless the seller agrees to provide one or you obtain one yourself from a home warranty provider.
I hope that helps. I wish you the best of luck.
