If you are looking to buy a home, you are likely considering a home inspection. But have you considered obtaining a sewer inspection as well? Many potential homebuyers may not know that the New Hampshire law only allows septic repairs in certain circumstances, and if there are serious problems, the law requires a new system to be designed, installed and approved. The costs for a new septic system can be upwards of $20,000! After purchasing a new home, you don’t want to be burdened with this added expense. Before you purchase your home, a complete septic system inspection is worth the investment.
