Down payment minimums are a function of the loan type used. FHA requires a minimum of 3.5% down. VA and USDA require 0% down. Conventional loans range from 5-10-15-20% down. You can always put more down to reduce the loan amount and thus your payments each month.
If you are asking about earnest money then that is negotiable between you and the seller. Your agent will have an idea of what is customary in your area. If you want to offer an amount with $500 earnest money and the seller wants you to put more in escrow, they will counter your offer with that amount. Your Realtor will be better able to advise you on earnest money than the lender will. The lender will be able to tell you more about money as a down payment to the loan.... more

And also has redtagged the hot water heater. the owner has no interest in any of these problems.... more
Since no local answers yet--any local agent can help you--contact any realty office(s) and inquire or contact any local Trulia contributor(s) directly and ask--or check your local property records departments and see if any leins exist--as far as the utilities--it really depends on usage, size of the property, etc. and again any agent can help you with some guess estimates.... more
Yes, you have some decisions. Rent to own could be good, but in most cases the purchase price is "undefined" so beware.
