Confabulat: EVERYBODY PANIC: It is a very nice house in a very nice neighborhood

Yeah, that's subjective. Pasco County subdivisions are the ugliest damn thing mankind has ever built outside of Communist countries.

profplump: Confabulat: I'm not sure what the point of surveying land for sinkholes is anyway. What are they going to do about it?

It's often possible to underpin a structure and mitigate the risk of sinkhole damage. It's something they should have done before building, but you can do it afterwards if necessary.

I would think that people would do this before buying a home there.
