Many recommend that a septic system inspection be done before you sell a property with onsite wastewater treatment. Although it is not required by law to do so, experienced property owners and realtors will strongly recommend that you do so. Custom Septic provides affordable septic system inspections in Big Lake and surrounding Minnesota cities. Our septic inspections provide insight into the life expectancy of your septic system, identify any red flags, and ensure that it is safe working.
It’s a good idea for the seller to talk about everything, regardless of whether they are the agent or the previous owner. However, even if they do know everything, they won’t be able to divulge it all. They might not know of any problems with the drainpipe or septic tank. Ask for records of maintenance and cleaning, as well as when the septic tank was first installed. It might need to be replaced if it is older than 25 years.
