Septic System Inspections
For those who are buying a home with a Septic system (OSWT) and or a well, it is required by the State of Missouri that the inspector be licensed through the Department of Health and Senior Services for all real estate transaction related inspections. Please read the law Governing Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (19 CSR 20-3.070 Requirements for On-Site Wastewater Treatment Systems Inspectors / Evaluators page 44) before hiring an individual to perform your OSWT (Septic) inspection.
Please beware of Home Inspectors that offer septic inspections that are not licensed through or received training from the Department of Health and Senior Services. An improper septic inspection could cost you tens of thousands of dollars after the closing.
Here is a licensed OSWT inspector that I trust. If you need a well and/or septic inspection call Chris!
