Septic inspections start at $250.
If the home you are buying has a septic system, an inspection is recommended unless the system is new within the past 2 or 3 years, or has been rebuilt recently, and inspected by the state inspector. A newer system should have an approved septic plan available. The septic system inspection will include an inspection of the tank to check for evidence of problems. It generally is not necessary to pump the tank in order to inspect it. The leach field will be inspected to determine its type, approximate boundaries, and condition. Price is for services provided at the same time as the home inspection.
