Your advice/ stories: Buying farm real estate

Moberly, MO

Some of us live on farms, others (like me) are still drooling over the notion.

When it's time to make the purchase, what's the best way to not get duped?

I don't want to get stuck with a place that's riddled with coal mine shafts, a polluted water table, ridiculously restrictive building codes, thin topsoil, etc.

Before property can be bought, how much is a person allowed to scope out a place?

Is the seller going to completely disclose any problems with the property? Legally, does he/she have to?
