Winter Weather Can Disrupt Title 5 Inspections

Down to Earth Construction Services were as surprised as many of our customers about the amount of snow that fell in this region overnight. Unfortunately some of the Title 5 Inspections that we had scheduled in Marion, Mattapoisett, Swansea, Fairhaven and Fall River could not take place because our customers could not get to the site or the septic system could not be accessed. However whether our inspector or customer can not get to the location of the inspection due to weather conditions or if the septic system is not accessible or for another reason there is no need for property owners to panic when they need the septic inspection for a property sale. Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs know that we live in a state where the weather can, a regularly does, effect plans. Therefore it is stated on the Mas Gov website:

 

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.” For more information see:

If for any reason the inspection can not take place we will always endeavour to reschedule the inspection as quickly as possible at a time that is convenient. If you have any questions or wish to schedule a septic inspection please do contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
