Our DEQ-certified team can provide a comprehensive eight-page septic inspection report for your entire Septic System. These reports are most commonly used in real estate transactions!
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality advises seeking a professional evaluation for your septic system when engaging in the purchase or sale of a home.
Key Points to Consider:
Septic system evaluations are discretionary. However, if you choose to proceed with an evaluation, it must be conducted using the approved form. Inspections encompass an eight-page DEQ Inspection report, detailing both the tank's condition and functionality. These evaluations are commonly conducted during real estate transactions and are applicable to agents, homebuyers, and home sellers. Pumping is typically performed at the time of service to facilitate a thorough inspection and accurate completion of the report.
Who Can Perform This Service?
The DEQ mandates that evaluators fall into one of the following categories: an installer, maintenance provider, wastewater specialist, environmental health specialist, or a National Association of Wastewater Technicians (NAWT) certified inspector with experience inspecting existing septic systems.
Additionally, a professional septic system evaluation serves as a crucial step in ensuring the integrity and functionality of the system, providing valuable insights for both buyers and sellers in the real estate transaction.
Benefits of a Professional Septic System Evaluation:
In summary, a professional septic system evaluation goes beyond a mere formality; it is a strategic investment in the longevity and efficiency of the septic system and contributes to a transparent and smooth real estate transaction.
