If you have a septic tank system on your property, whether it’s your home or business, regular inspections are necessary. An inspection is also crucial if you’re purchasing a new property or selling your current one. Let’s take a closer look at how an expert septic inspection can save you thousands.
Why should a home buyer get a septic tank inspection?
Even if your mortgage lender doesn’t require a septic inspection as a condition for loan approval, you should still get one. A standard home inspection only checks the condition of a house’s roof, furnace, plumbing and electrical system. It may include a general inspection of the outside of your septic system and drain field, but it will not include a full inspection of the tank or the other components. Buying a home with a malfunctioning septic system can quickly turn into a disaster, and cost you hundreds, even thousands of dollars to repair or replace. Even if you have to cover the cost of the inspection yourself, it could save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
Why should you get a septic inspection if you’re selling your home?
An inspection at the start of the home selling process could save you lots of money and headaches down the line. Potential buyers will be assured that they’re purchasing a sound property, and you’ll save yourself from legal trouble if a problem arises after the sale.
Why should a homeowner get a septic inspection?
If you currently have a functioning septic system on your property, you should keep up with yearly inspections. A professional septic tank inspection will catch problems and issues before they turn into costly repairs. A well-maintained septic system that is also inspected regularly is less likely to incur leaks, blockages, and backups.
