Purchasing a new home or commercial property can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time.  From the very moment you put in an offer, you feel an attachment to the property that you may soon be able to call yours. The future is full of possibility with your new purchase, but it can also be filled with expensive surprises. Whether you are searching for your forever home or a place to start your dream business, you want to be sure everything is as expected.

Septic Inspections are Essential When Buying a New Home or Property

You may have been told that having a few home inspections done before you officially close on your new property was a good idea, but did you add septic inspections to this list? Many real estate agents neglect to mention the importance of septic inspections. This is often because they are inexperienced with septic systems or because having a septic system done isn’t always part of the standard buying process. However, you need to remember that if you don’t have your septic system inspected before you finalize the sale, you could be in for trouble later on.

A qualified septic professional can identify if there’s a problem with a property’s septic system. For example, septic inspections can identify cracks, holes, unexpected wear, the condition of the leach system, and other potential problems. Your technician can also help you know what type of maintenance costs you can expect with the type of system you have and set up a regular maintenance schedule.

If you are in the process of buying a new home or commercial property, be sure to contact Averett Septic Tank Co Inc. to schedule a septic inspection. We’re confident that you won’t regret the decision to do so.
