Jackson Willis answered:
Our home inspection revealed extensive plumbing problems, foundation slipping, and termite damage. Can we ask the seller to pay for our inspection?

Property tax clarification
David,
We pay taxes and it is separated by county and town taxes.
If you live in a village like Webster you will also have village taxes appear as well.
