Some counties have implemented a Time of Sale program. Time of Sale programs consist of an inspection and evaluation of septic systems before a change in ownership occurs. These programs were developed because a large percentage of septic systems have reached their life expectancy. Many homes were being sold without proper inspection being performed and before long the new homeowner was left with a failing septic system. The Time of Sale program ensures a good working system for the new homeowner, leaving less anxiety for a potential buyer. Washtenaw County currently enforces a Time of Sale program. If you are in the process of selling your home please contact us for a complete inspection to ensure your septic system meets the Time of Sale requirements.
