Ok, we found this property in the college town we liked. Realtor did not tell us about the landfill near by. This town is mostly built up and landlocked by the large university and the students.

If this were the suburb of a large city, no doubt- I would have said lets not go through with this. But considering the area we picked seems to be highly desirable by the local families and there is not much land left, should we still be concerned about this land fill thing? We can not see the landfill from the fouse because of a small hill in between.

We have not closed on the house, not done the inspection yet. So, I believe we can get out of this thing if we wanted to.
