First Underestimation

Building a house, this is bound to happen about 1,000 times. But this time, I did not really see it coming.  Part of our contingency on our offer is that we are able to get a septic approved on the lot. There was a 4 bedroom septic approved since 2011 but has since expired. So the agent quoted "$250" for a resubmission fee.

When I talked to the septic designer, he quoted $610 as the resubmission fee and then he said they would have to go out and re-test the soil and that was going to be $750. Hello $1360!

I am going to go out and take some photos of the lot the next sunny day.
