What is the law regarding disclosures in a real estate purchase?

Question Details: We just moved into a house a year ago. Upon moving in, we began having septic issues so we began to get quotes. It only occurred to us after we got a few quotes that the last homeowner had been doing the same thing. The last company that I spoke with told me she put a deposit down and asked to be refunded the next day. Shortly after that I purchased the home and was wondering if she is in the wrong.
