Fosse issues

Hi folks

I understand the rules of updated the fosse for new purchasers, this question doesn’t relate to that part of the law here in France.
We bought an old farmhouse which did not have connection to a fosse. The farm did have a animal waste fosse which the report did not mention which is full of @@@@. Are the previous owners liable for the emptying?

I’ve no idea Ian but I do know slurry pits are very dangerous. People are often drowned in them. So take care.

Most likely not. Its a farm - they have slurry tanks. On the whole the assumption is you checked before you bought here

You could argue vice cache if it was “hidden” but … - you can spend a few grand in fees and stress and get them to spend a few hundred emptying it …
