All Clear Septic septic,inspections All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled today in Norton, Taunton, Raynham, East Bridgewater, Middleborough, Hanson and Lakeville, MA.  If you are selling a property with a septic system you are likely to need a septic inspection before you can transfer property title.  However at this time of year if weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to six months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection. For more information see the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.  For this reason All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services would recommend that if you are selling a property that is not on town sewer and has a septic system, that you do the inspection at the start of your sale process.  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, you are unlikely to need to redo the inspection if you have it done early in your sale process and having the inspection done early could prevent any delays later on caused by unexpected events such as a snowstorm, which are always possible in Massachusetts in the winter. If you need to schedule a Title 5 Septic Inspection or have any questions please do contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit
