We sold our house and I hired Envirotek Systems to do my septic inspection. They also did the repairs I needed to close on the house. I highly recommend them if you need an inspection.
You can expect more with our services. Most septic inspectors simply just run some water in the sink and call it good. Trust in our knowledge to perform everything that the state and county requires.
Real Estate Inspection for Septic Systems
If you’re selling or buying a home, you’ll likely be required by the lender or county to have an inspection of your septic system performed.
We have been involved in countless inspections for real estate transactions. We also make it an easy and seamless process.
Real estate generally comes with a tremendous amount of paper work, so we help lessen this burden by acquiring, performing and submitting all necessary forms and permits for the transfer.
For Home Buyers:
When it comes to buying your home, there’s a lot to consider. One of the hardest things to really get a grasp on is the septic system. It’s usually buried underground and out of sight to truly determine it’s functionality.
Most sellers generally have this service performed, but for the smart home buyers, they call us to ensure that everything is in working order.
Budgeting for the purchase of a home is hard enough to deal with. Add to that with an unexpected expense or repair that can be in the thousands, is one specific reason why home buyers trust in us. Have your septic inspected by us to avoid these future costly expenses.
So you’ve sold your home and now it’s time to finish up the remaining details. If you live in Stone County, it’s likely that you are required to get a septic inspection before the process can be finalized.
We understand that from a homeowner’s (seller’s) perspective that getting the paper work is all you really care to have done. By law and county regulations, there are a few requirements that must be met. (see requirements below)
As a seller there are certain things you should strongly consider when it comes to selling your home. Missouri state and county regulations are in place to prevent soil and contamination issues, but also to ensure that everything is in working order.
When you select an inspector that doesn’t perform the process correctly, you might be held liable if down the road issues with the system are to occur.
Our methods and approach are to perform our inspections methodically and to ensure that each component functions and operates to code. This ensures that your septic system meets all the local governing authority’s requirements.
