Legal Q&A | Are there limits on a buyer’s right to inspect the seller’s property?

QUESTION: A week ago, my client entered into a contract for the sale of his property. He called me last night sounding hysterical. He said that when he returned home from work, there was a backhoe in his back yard, a huge hole in the ground, and an equally huge pile of dirt. I called the buyer’s agent. She told me that her client had concerns about the location and adequacy of the septic field serving the property and had hired a septic company to conduct a thorough analysis. Is that type of inspection permissible?
