Buying or Selling a Home with a Septic System

Hire an Experienced Inspector to Inspect Your Septic System

When you’re buying or selling a home with a septic system, you should hire an experienced inspector. Your septic system is a crucial component of the home’s value. Montgomery Sanitation knows that there’s a lot involved with buying or selling a home. However, you shouldn’t overlook the septic system. Homeowners often don’t think of a septic system because it’s underground. It’s only when something goes wrong that we think about the septic system.


This month, Montgomery Sanitation suggests what you should consider when you’re buying or selling a home with a septic system. We strongly recommend hiring Montgomery Sanitation to inspect your septic system before selling or buying.


All New Home Buyers Should Have a Septic System Inspection

All new home buyers should have a thorough septic system inspection before purchasing a home. When you do that, it ensures the health, longevity, and any past known defects. If you fail to inspect and discuss it with the owner, it could cost you thousands of dollars. The Septic inspection is one of the most important aspects of the house. We offer walkover inspections, septic system evaluations, and alternative septic system inspections.


Montgomery Sanitation Performs Walkover Inspections

At Montgomery Sanitation, we perform walkover inspections the most. If the inspector finds a problem before you buy a home, you might want to reconsider buying the home.  Our inspector will walk over the septic system in search of any obvious signs of drain field leaks. If we find a leak, or leaks, during the walkover inspection, we let you know what needs repaired.


Consider Our Thorough and Accurate Septic System Evaluation

Septic system evaluation is the most comprehensive of our septic system inspections. Our inspector finds the septic tank, uncovers it and uncovers the distribution box. We will also evaluate the inlet line, septic tank, outlet line, and distribution box during the septic system evaluation. Our staff will evaluate the condition of the septic system and follow up with a report.


We Can Provide Alternative Septic System Inspections

Montgomery Sanitation is a certified alternative septic system operator. We can perform the required annual alternative septic system inspection in and around the New River Valley. We are experienced in performing these detailed inspections. Virginia requires homeowners to have a certified operator perform an alternative septic system inspection.
