When are Title 5 Septic Inspections Required?

All Clear Septic

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections today in Attleboro, North Attleboro, Wrentham, Bellingham and Blackstone MA. As stated on the Official website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs for Massachusetts:

“Septic system inspections are required

  • Within 2 years prior to the sale of the property. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months after the sale.
  • When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit. This does not mean an inspection is required every time a building permit is needed – only when the use of the facility changes (e.g., from residential to commercial) or when a facility expands (e.g., adding a bedroom, enlarging the square footage of an office building, or adding seats to a restaurant).
  • Unless official records showing location of the system components are available, any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.
  • For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.
  • Every 3 years for shared systems.
  • When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.
  • When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection.”

Title 5 Inspection

What is Involved in a Title 5 Inspection?

Title 5 Inspection All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that since 1995, the State of Massachusetts has required homeowners to have their private sewage treatment system checked thoroughly by a State-Certified Title 5 Inspector when properties are sold, divided or combined, when there is a change in use, or an expansion of a facility, or when MassDEP or the local Board of Health requires an inspection. There are  a few other instances when a Title 5 Inspection is required and for more information contact your local Board of Health.

 

Here is what you can expect from an official Title 5 Inspection – the inspector will:

 

  • conduct an interview with the property owner
  • research the paperwork for your property at your city’s Board of Health Department
  • survey the general size of the building or list a summary of the number of bedrooms
  • inspects the connection from the house/building to the system
  • inspects the inlet/outlet of the septic tank
  • examines the integrity of the tank
  • measures the liquid/contents of the tank
  • examines the integrity of the distribution box
  • measures the liquid/contents of the distribution box
  • checks the soil absorption system (SAS) condition
  • checks the relation of the system’s water table to the SAS
  • examines the integrity of the pipes using a special “sewer cam” (All Clear Septic and Wastewater Service’s specialty service, not required by the state)
  • provides an official 17-page document to the local approving authority and the owner, including all findings and a detailed sketch of the system

How Long is a Septic Inspection Valid?

emergency services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have Septic Inspections scheduled for customers today in Sharon, Mansfield, Norton, Franklin, Foxboro, and Stoughton, MA.

 Septic Inspections, required in connection with a property transfer, generally are good for two years.  If a property is sold more than once in the two-year period, the single inspection is valid for all transfers.  When a system is pumped on an annual basis and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for three years.

 Therefore, if you are selling a property with a septic system, it is advisable to have your septic inspection done as early in the process as you can.  There is no benefit to delay, because it will be valid for 2 years, and if the inspection does reveal an issue, you will have more time to rectify the problem.  If your septic system passes, that is just one more positive to use when advertising your property.  If you need to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
