What is  a Title 5 Inspection?

When buying or selling a home, an inspection of the septic system is likely to be involved. This inspection that must be performed is known as a Title 5 Inspection. This is when an inspector will come to the property and make sure your septic system is at its best. The inspector will check for potential hazards of wastewater to the surrounding community as well as make sure the original system was properly built and maintained. This protects the seller from issues the buyer can come back with later and the buyer from a costly repair after moving into their new home.
 

Why do I need a Title 5 Inspection?

Many homeowners may not be aware of it, but the state has a septic system law which specifies that those who do not have a public sewer connection must have an inspection when selling a home. You might wonder the reason behind such a law, but looking into septic systems and repair costs may make it clearer.
 
At a minimum, a new septic system installation could cost $10,000. Repairs can be just as pricey. This means that a failed septic system would be a large burden on someone who had just purchased a home. Finding any problems sooner rather than later can make sure that both the seller and buyer avoid even larger issues, monetarily or otherwise, in the future.
 

What to expect from a Title 5 Inspection


Adding a Title 5 inspection to your to-do list when selling a home can be overwhelming. It may help to know what to expect when our inspector comes to your home.
 
The first step in the process is what you need to do to make the process go smoother. Be sure to gather water records for the last 24 months, drawings of your septic system components and location, and pumping records. Be sure not to pump for at least two weeks prior to your scheduled inspection.
 
On the day of the inspection, you can expect us to:
  • Use the drawings you give us to locate your septic system
  • Dig to inspect necessary components in your septic system
  • Make updated notes of locations, depths, and conditions of components
  • Take photographs
  • Backfill and clean up after our work
  • Write an official report with a copy going to you
