When Do You Need a Title 5 Inspection

septic repairs Down to Earth Construction Services has Title 5 Inspections scheduled in Norton, Seekonk, Taunton and Rehoboth, MA today. One Title 5 Inspection is scheduled for a customer who has expanded the size of their home adding 2 bedrooms. As per the Mass Gov website:

“A system must be inspected upon any change of use or increase in design flow, BUT ONLY IF the change or expansion also requires a building permit or occupancy permit from the local building inspector. Examples include adding a bedroom to a house, adding seats to a restaurant, or changing the type of business operating at a commercial location. Check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health to find out if your situation requires a building or occupancy permit which will trigger a system inspection.

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. If official records are available to determine the location of the system components, this requirement may be waived. Check with your local Board of Health.”

If you are unsure whether you need a Title 5 Inspection either check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health or contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit
