When Do I Need a Title 5 Septic Inspection?

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has Title 5 Septic System Inspections today in Hingham, Scituate, Hanover, Hanson, East Bridgewater, Marshfield, and Plymouth, MA.  We are usually contacted by customers who require Title 5 Septic inspections because they are selling a property with a septic system and also by buyers who want an inspection done for their information also. However, there are additional reasons for a septic inspection and today we have a Title 5 Inspection in Hingham, MA because a commercial property owner has had an expansion, which included adding seats to their restaurant, and as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website for the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

A system must be inspected upon any change of use or increase in design flow, BUT ONLY IF the change or expansion also requires a building permit or occupancy permit from the local building inspector. Examples include adding a bedroom to a house, adding seats to a restaurant, or changing the type of business operating at a commercial location. Check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health to find out if your situation requires a building or occupancy permit which will trigger a system inspection.”

Did you know 50% of all septic system inspections fail??

What does this mean for you and your seller?

Sellers need to address this issue prior to putting their house on the market, or at least within the first few weeks.  A house will sell much quicker with a Title 5 Certificate of Compliance and be much more attractive to buyers.

What happens if your septic system fails Title 5?  Now is the time to address the issues with either a repair or installation of a new septic.  Many buyers will be unable to purchase a home with a failed septic and this limits their scope.  Encouraging your sellers to take  care of the situation prior to putting their house on the market will mean a better selling price in the end.
