It is wise for buyers to make sure the septic system of a potential home is in good working condition. A faulty system can hurt the value of the property, cost thousands of dollars in future repairs and cause serious harm to the environment. Some states realize the severity and have designed regulations to govern this.
Occasionally, you get a tank that is too small for the amount of water that runs through it on a regular basis. This results in improper filtration and clogging. There are ways around it, but not without inconvenience to those living in the home. If a buyer wants the freedom to use as much water in their new home as they’d like, they need to make sure the tank is large enough to accommodate their needs. Otherwise, the system will eventually break down and result in costly repairs.
Unless there was a recent storm, a lawn with puddles or marshy areas is a red flag. This could be indication of leaching failure and needs to be addressed before discussing down payments on the home.
Hopefully, the current homeowner has kept good records of septic maintenance. The local board of health is also a good source of information if nothing was tracked. We recommend septic pumping every one to two years, so if the tank has not been serviced in that time frame, the buyer should request it be done before making a purchase.
