The inspection of the septic system, as well as the inspection of the building, is an important step when buying or selling a property

Buying and financing a home are important milestones in a lifetime. It is therefore strongly advisable to have the septic system inspected before buying or selling a property.

To ensure that your investment is protected, it is important that the septic tank and the scrubber be inspected by an expert in the field.

The replacement of a septic system can cost over $20,000. Such an expense for a new owner can be huge. A system that does not work well is a health hazard and can potentially contaminate nearby wells. This could lead to a conflict involving the owner, the real estate broker and the seller, and could also affect the ability of the owner to perform several financial duties. For your protection, and for the protection of the environment, it is important to determine if a septic system works well before the purchase.

A well-designed system can last up to 25 years or more, provided it is maintained. A system that has not been adequately maintained can easily see its lifespan decrease from year to year. Without inspection, it is impossible to know its working condition. That’s why we offer a comprehensive inspection service to protect your investment and avoid potential conflict.

We now offer the pre-purchase inspection service in Ontario.
