Full Septic Tank Inspections

        What Is A Septic Inspection?
A septic inspection confirms that a septic system is in satisfactory working condition according to set standards set by the Virginia Department  of  Professional and                      Occupational Regulation.

        Why Is A Septic Inspection Needed?
Over the last few years, many mortgage companies and lending institutions have begun to request septic certifications for logical and justifiable reasons. In order to                   help insure that such a financial burden as repairing or replacing a septic system is not shifted to a new homeowner, obtaining a septic inspection prior to closing is a                   nominal, yet sound investment. For most people, a home is the single most important and expensive purchase they will ever make.

           For prospective home buyers, it is important to have the on-sight sewage system inspected before they go to settlement, even if the lending institution does not impose         such a requirement. The decision to have a septic system inspection before buying a new home may save money and headaches in the future.
