A Title 5 Inspection Does Not Need To Be A Stressful Part Of Moving

Down to Earth Construction Services know that moving house is always a stressful business and try to make one part of the process easier. If you have a septic system you are likely to need a Title 5 Inspection. As stated on the MassGov website:

“a system shall be inspected at or within two years prior to the time of transfer of title to the facility served by the system.  An inspection conducted up to three years before the time of transfer may be used if the inspection report is accompanied by system pumping records demonstrating that the system has been pumped at least once a year during that time.  If weather conditions preclude inspection at the time of transfer, the inspection may be completed as soon as weather permits, but in no event later than six months after the transfer, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing”

It Benefits Your Property Sale To Have Your Septic Inspection Done Early

Down to Earth Construction Services are contacted by property owners in this region to conduct septic inspections because we have qualified inspectors who can carry out septic inspections on your schedule.

Septic inspections are often required because a property is being sold with a septic system and it is necessary to have one when a property is sold, divided or combined. We recommend that if you are going to sell a property with a septic system that you have the septic inspection conducted early in your sale process. If it highlights problems with your system you have time to have it fixed, if you choose to do so, without it impacting your sale timeline. If you pass with no problems that is just another positive selling point for your property. It is worth noting that if your septic system fails its inspection the owner or operator of the system is the legally responsible party required to upgrade the failing system. Prior to transfer of the property, this is typically the seller. Often, the buyer and seller work out the financial issues as part of the sale of the property. Title 5 does not require that a system be in passing condition prior to the sale, but most lenders will not issue a mortgage until the failing system is upgraded or funds to perform the upgrade are escrowed. 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 there really is no benefit in delaying having your inspection done if you are selling your property.
