Tucson Septic Inspections Buyer ConsiderationsA Tucson Septic Inspection is required when buying a Tucson Home with a Septic System.  The Septic System inspection verifies all functions of the system are in good working order.

The Septic Inspection should be done during the home inspection period stated in the purchase contract. Each Seller is responsible scheduling and paying for the inspection. When the inspection report is received, the seller will them provide the report to the Buyer.

If suggested by the Tucson Home Inspection, a Tucson Structural Inspection or Tucson Pool Inspection may be required.
