Any real estate agent who represents buyers of residential or commercial properties will tell you that real estate inspections are a critical part of the purchasing process. However, only the best real estate agents will recommend that their buyers have a full septic system inspection performed before buying a house. At Green Pastures Services LLC, we work closely with agents and buyers who want their real estate inspections to include a thorough examination of the septic system.
Septic system real estate inspections include such processes determining how old the septic system is, suggesting when septic tank pumping should be scheduled, an opinion of the health of the drain field and septic tank, and an assessment as to the potential lifespan of the system. We can also give you an estimate for any necessary repairs and make recommendations for upgrades, so they can become part of the negotiations for purchasing the property. Sometimes, the septic system is beyond repair and needs to be replaced. Having this information allows the buyer to make the decision to lower their offer or walk away from the property.
The reason it is so important to have a septic system inspection prior to purchasing a property, whether residential or commercial, is not just to be made aware of potential problems, but also to be able to set an accurate maintenance schedule going forward. It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of the new purchase and then never give a thought to the septic system again until it has a problem, but this can be a costly mistake.
Anyone considering purchasing a property should give us a call today at (407) 292-0782 to schedule a septic real estate inspection. The peace of mind it provides makes it well worth the time and effort.
