SEPTIC TANK INSPECTION SERVICE
To schedule an inspection with All Inspections 4U, call (954) 802-8524
A septic system must be inspected within two years of the sale of the property. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must be done within six months after the sale. An inspection is required if there is a proposed change in use or expansion of the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit. Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system to ensure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the reserve area of the system. The physical inspection is waived if official records are available to determine the location of the system components.
The property owner or facility operator is generally responsible for obtaining an inspection of the septic system. Prior to the time of transfer of title, the seller as well as the buyer may change the responsibility for arranging the inspection, provided that the responsibility is specified in a written contract, and that the inspection still occurs within the specified time frames.
The inspection by All Inspections 4 U is intended to provide sufficient information to make a determination as to whether or not the system in its current condition is adequate to protect public health and the environment. However, the inspection is not a guarantee that the system will continue to function adequately and is not a guarantee that the system will not fail at a later date. This is a particularly important point to remember if you are going to significantly increase the flow to the system.
