Septic Inspections for Real Estate in Indianapolis, Indiana
Septic System Tips for Home Sellers
While it is not the responsibility of the home seller to provide inspection, a failing septic system is a condition no one, including potential buyers, wants to see. We at Knox Septic & Sewer Service suggest some easy-to-follow steps to prepare for home selling and to pass the inspection:
By preparing information about your septic system including its age, the location of components, type of components and history of service and repairs, you can avoid worst-case guesses and unnecessary warnings to a buyer. Provide the most accurate information that you can about your septic system.
Professionally Clean Your Tank
There is a lot of maintenance when preparing to sell your home. Cleaning your septic tank should be saved until you have a secure buyer. By waiting until you have a buyer, you will know if there is going to be an inspection of your tank. These inspections have to be done at the same time as a pumping or cleaning of the tank.
Septic System Tips for Home Buyers
