The Property Owner is Responsible for Arranging Their Title 5 Septic Inspection When Selling

Down to Earth Construction Services has Title 5 Septic Inspection appointments scheduled today in Holliston, Canton, Sharon, Foxboro, and Stoughton MA. When you have a Title 5 septic inspection this is what is included:

 

  • General layout of the system components (location of the building sewer, septic tank or cesspool, distribution box and leaching field);

  • Type of use (e.g., house, school, retail space), Title 5 design flow, and whether the facility is presently occupied;

  • Analysis of the criteria specified in Title 5 that indicate system failure, and, for large systems, those which indicate threats to public health and the environment;

  • Water use records from the previous two years, if available;

  • A description of the septic tank, including its condition, approximate age, thickness of grease/scum layer, and other relevant information;

  • A characterization of the distribution box and dosing tanks with pumps, if any, such as condition and evidence of solids carryover or backup; and

  • The condition of the soil absorption system including, any signs of hydraulic failure.

 

We have found that many property owners who have scheduled an septic inspection do not know what it will entail because they have not needed to have one done before. Generally it is the seller of a property that is responsible to carrying out the septic inspection so unless you have previously owned and sold a property with a septic system you may not have previously needed to scheduled one.  This is made clear on the Mass Gov Website:

 

“The property owner or operator is responsible for arranging the inspection. The buyer and seller may change the responsibility for arranging the inspection prior to title transfer, provided that this change is put in writing and that the inspection still occurs within the specified timeframes.”

Septic System Installation in Attleboro MA

Down to Earth Construction Services are beginning a septic system installation today in Attleboro MA. Attleboro is a City of over 43,000 residents so it can be surprising that there are a large number of homes that are still serviced by a septic system and are not on town sewer. However as more homes are built, even in cities, it is becoming increasingly normal that residential homes will have their own septic system and not be connected to a town sewer. It is no longer only properties that are in remote locations that are serviced by septic systems. A septic system should not be something that property owners should be concerned by however and by following some simple guidelines and ensuring that you carry out septic pumping as necessary your septic system should not be any more problematic than being on town sewer. We have recently installed other septic systems for customers in Sharon, Carver and Stoughton MA.
