Septic inspections for NH Real EstateSeptic Inspections For Real Estate

If you are considering buying a home in New Hampshire, there are a few things you need to know about septic inspections for real estate properties here. Unlike Massachusetts, which has Title 5 mandates, New Hampshire has no laws requiring a septic inspection as a condition to selling a home. It’s very likely that the bank or mortgage company may require a septic inspection before they will approve a loan, but as a savvy home buyer, it’s a good idea to have a thorough septic inspection performed before making an offer on a home.

Although a septic inspection can cost around $400, the cost of installing a new septic system in the New Hampshire lakes region can run between $10,000 and $15,000 – depending on the complexity of the septic system design. This is a significant number to think about when entering into a real estate negotiation process.

As a seller, it would be prudent for you to anticipate the potential buyers concern about your septic system, and have a septic inspection and detailed report to show your septic is in good working order. While the buyer can still hire a septic inspector on their own, a detailed report provided by the seller may be sufficient to satisfy their concerns about the septic system failing.
