We recently found out that our sewer was hooked up illegally years ago
We bought this house 4years ago and had nothing to do with it. So we are facing thousands of dollars to fix it. Needless to say i dont have the money
How unfair is this!!

I'm so sorry to hear this. I don't suppose there is anyway to hold the people who did it accountable?
I wish I had some advice for you, but I don't other than to say keep your chin up! I hope it works out somehow!

Oh that sounds horrible and out of your control. Can you talk to an attorney to see if there is any recourse with the seller or builder?

Oh my gosh. What terrible news! I hope it isn't as much money as you think. Get a few quotes. Good luck! Hugs!

I would definately see if there is any legal recourse.

Until then, as much as it s*cks, it needs to be done.

Do you have title insurance on the house? This might be covered.
