If I'm Selling My Home, Do I Need a Septic Inspection?

Yes. Before selling your home, you and/or your realtor should arrange to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection to determine the condition of your system. The inspector will write up a full report; this will get submitted to the Board of Health and the Health Agent will review the report. If the Inspector and/or Agent find that any repairs need to be made to have the system compliant with the Massachusetts DEP Title 5 Regulations, a Licensed Septic Installer will need to make the repairs. The Installer must be licensed in the Town of Rockport. For a list of Title 5 Inspectors, you may go to the MassDEP website.
