Disclosure of broken well


Good afternoon. I’m a prospective home buyer deep into the process of purchasing the property. A well production test on the property determined the well was producing only 0.03 gallons per minute. The seller in 2017 also had a well production test run, so I feel they knew it was an issue. The seller however did not disclose this in their listing nor in any other way. Although the property has a 1000 gallon cistern, it would cost me upwards of $400 a month to have it refilled. What are the disclosure laws regarding well production and listing property details when selling the house? I believe the well also has an expired well permit.
