Asked by First-time Homebuyer, West Orange, NJ • Sat May 1, 2010
but no soil testing was ever done. we asked if he opposed to doing a soil test and he told us it would have to be at our expense. we don't find this to be very fair however as we see the risk should be taken by him as the seller and also for not getting the proper soil testing done when abandoning the tank 9 years ago. the seller claims that soil testing was not required back then. are we really stuck with having to pay this expense? we got quotes for $600-$800. what if we pay this expense and find out there is contamination and they still don't want to remediate it? need some advice. by the way, our lawyer isn't that helpful and he is telling us that "our concerns are unwarranted". we disagree. we want the soil tested before moving forward. our contract has been in attorney review for 5 days now.
