If you are buying a property which is connected to a septic tank, or any other off mains drainage system, a thorough inspection of the system at the property could save you thousands of pounds. A typical house buyers survey will only take a very basic look at a property's drainage system. Often this simply involves lifting manholes to see if the drains are flowing. In many cases, the surveyor will note that no obvious problems were spotted, but that it would be advisable to get a more thorough drainage survey undertaken as problems underground can take months before they're noticed above ground.
If your property is having septic tank problems, or if you are buying a property which has a septic tank, it is really important to get a thorough septic tank inspection carried out.
This usually involves emptying the septic tank, and carrying out a CCTV drainage survey of the pipes leading to and from the septic tank itself. The structure of the tank itself is also checked for any possible damage such as root ingress or cracks, which is usually done with a CCTV camera lowered into the tank.

Buyers should never leave this to chance, and should be sure that they know exactly what they are taking on with a new property.

A thorough inspection will let us know whether there are any problems – and if there are, we can guide you as to exactly what might need to be done.
Your car gets its MOT every year, so why shouldn't your septic tank get the same?
