No. Don't buy. Don't take the chance. Several wrongs don't
make a right - better safe than sorry.
| My wife and I are looking at buying a 5 acre lot in central
| and building a single family home. The lot is in flood zone
| the civil engineer told me that fairly normal since it's across
| street from a lake. However, the environmental engineer told
| was on "placid fine sand" and we should not build there.
| there are homes to the left and right and a new subdivision
| across the street. I don't understand how this lot could have
| problem and not all the others. To my eye, it's at the same
| every other lot and doesn't have any obvious water or watery
| it. It does have several oaks and florida pines.
| Any thoughts? Should I not buy the land?
