You are responsible (especially through title searches and inspections) to know what is going on with this property. If the house is attached to public water and sewer, the title searches and such would not necessarily have revealed this exisiting charge but that is not your charge anyway. If this a charge that was past due to the previous owner and the broker would have reason to know or should have known, then you can sue the previous owner and broker and listing agent.
