Contract Series Paragraph 17

George Clements ~ Greenville, SC Real Estate


Paragraph 17 of the Contract For Sale is pretty simple and looks something like this:


17. WATER/WASTE SYSTEMS: Seller represents that the Property is connected to ___ public sewer system ___ septic tank, ___ public water system, ___ individual well system, ___ other water well system.


This clause is basically just showing what the seller says the house has for water and sewer systems and doesn't need a lot of explanation.  A house is most likely either going to have public water or a well and public sewer or a septic tank.  

There is a place on the seller's disclosure that shows what sewer and water a property have.
