there is a smell coming from primarily the toilet bowl not the tank. it is a strong almost musty smell, not quite sewer, howevr it does overpower a few rooms. there are no leaks around toilet, the toilet does have some movement but i didnt want to move it too much. i just purchased my home about 2months ago and it passed septic/home inspection. where do i start. in addition there are no smells in the basement and all drains move well. any help would b appreciated.

Three years ago a home inspector gave a house a clean bill of health and upon this inspectors report the people bought the home in excess of 1.25 million.

A few weeks later we had major rain storms and the sewers backed up and the freshly painted children's room had a ceiling leak and the basement was totally flooded.

There was also other deficiencies like poor flue piping and under sized gas lines and friable asbestos in the play room area and boiler room.

I was hired as an expert witness and the law firm that hired me went to the escrow account as any defects had to be listed, In this case it was not "as is home"

Also because the escrow account did not nearly cover the actual cost of my plumbing services and that of a roofing contractor the law firm went after the home inspector lucky he did have insurance or he would have been held accountable personally.

Unfortunately this is not an isolated incidence where a home inspector missed several major plumbing /gas deficiencies.

Contact the inspector then contact the lawyer who did the closing.

Then once you know who is responsible hire a licensed master plumber to give you an idea what it may cost.

I would not attempt to do any repairs until you find out who your law firm thinks is responsible IMHO
