Buying a house with a septic tank or wastewater treatment system? Did you know that of all septic tanks inspected by local authorities and the EPA, over half have failed? The homeowner has ultimate responsibility in ensuring that the system does not constitute, and is not likely to constitute, a risk to human health or the environment under the Water Services Act 2012.
It is therefore vital to know the state of a site’s wastewater treatment system when purchasing a property, in order to avoid acquiring a financial liability that is significant risk to environmental and human health.
