The house had an underground storage tank, still in use, that turned out to be leaking. The cleanup delayed settlement by about four months.

My sellers and I found out at the settlement table that their garage was about two feet over an easement. We had to get the owners of seven houses to agree to a modification of the easement in the last week in December.
