Why do you need an inspection?

Are you buying or selling a home with a septic system? It is highly recommended that you do some investigating to find out details about the system before you sign on any dotted lines. Because of the high costs associated with installing a new system and the complexity of the process in general, prospective homeowners have much to risk when they neglect to evaluate a system before the purchase:

  • How do you really know the system tied into your prospective home is functioning properly?
  • Did the previous homeowner abuse the system by neglecting to have the tanks pumped regularly?
  • When thousands of dollars are on the line can you really rest assured the system is functioning as intended because the seller told you so?

There’s only one way to gain a truly accurate idea of the system’s current condition: a comprehensive septic inspection. It has even become a common practice of financial institutions to require that this type of evaluation be completed so as to reach a conclusion about the condition and functionality of an onlot wastewater system before they invest in the home.
