Septic Inspections for Properties Being Sold and For Flow increases

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections for people selling their properties today in Fairhaven, New Bedford, Fall River, Mattapoisett and Marion. We also have a septic inspection scheduled in Westport Ma because their property has had an increase in flow so an inspection was required. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

“Changes of Use and Increases in Flow

These situations require a system inspection only if the modification requires a building permit or occupancy permit. For example:

  • adding a bedroom to a house
  • adding seats to a restaurant
  • changing the type of business operating at a commercial location.

Check with your Building Department or Board of Health to find out if your modification meets these requirements.

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. Check with your local Board of Health.”
