    Getting a septic system inspection for real estate resale is crucial for several reasons:

    1. Mortgage Company Requirement: Many mortgage lenders require a septic system inspection before approving a loan for a property with a septic system. By proactively conducting the inspection, you ensure compliance with the lender’s requirements and avoid any delays in the closing process.
    2. Buyer Confidence: Purchasing a property is a significant investment, and conscientious buyers understand the importance of a thorough inspection. By having a septic system inspection, buyers gain confidence in knowing that the system is adequate and functioning properly. It provides them with peace of mind and reassurance that they won’t face unexpected expenses for a septic system replacement in the near future.
    3. Potential Cost Savings: If an issue with the septic system is identified during the inspection, it allows for negotiation between the buyer and seller. The buyer can request repairs or adjustments to the sale price to account for the cost of necessary repairs or replacements. Identifying these issues before closing can save the buyer from shouldering the financial burden later on.
    4. Unregulated Inspections: As you mentioned, in some areas, septic system inspections are not regulated by a governing authority. This means that anyone can claim to be a septic inspector without the necessary expertise or qualifications. By hiring a reputable and experienced septic system inspection company like Tom Egan Cesspool Company, you ensure that the inspection is conducted by professionals who understand the intricacies of septic systems and can provide an accurate assessment.

    In summary, a septic system inspection for real estate resale is essential to meet mortgage company requirements, instill buyer confidence, potentially save costs, and ensure a reliable inspection by reputable professionals. Don’t overlook this critical step in the real estate transaction process to protect your investment and avoid future headaches.

    When looking for a septic system inspector, there are several key factors to consider:

    1. Reputation and Experience: Look for an inspector with a strong reputation in the industry. Seek recommendations from trusted sources, such as real estate professionals or previous clients. An experienced inspector will have a solid track record of conducting thorough and reliable inspections.
    2. Qualifications and Credentials: Inquire about the inspector’s qualifications and credentials. They should have specific training and certifications related to septic system inspections. Ask about their professional affiliations, such as memberships in industry organizations or associations.
    3. Knowledge and Expertise: Ensure that the inspector has a deep understanding of septic systems and the local regulations governing their inspection and maintenance. They should be able to answer your questions and provide insights into the condition and functionality of the septic system.
    4. Thorough Inspection Approach: Clarify what the inspection entails. A comprehensive septic system inspection should involve more than a basic visual assessment. It should include components such as tank and distribution box examination, leach field assessment, an inspection of pipes and connections, and testing for any potential issues or malfunctions.
    5. Transparent Reporting: Request a sample inspection report or ask about their reporting process. A reliable inspector should provide a detailed and easily understandable report that outlines the findings, identifies any problems, and offers recommendations for necessary repairs or maintenance.
    6. Good Communication: Choose an inspector who is responsive, attentive, and willing to address your concerns or questions throughout the process. Effective communication is essential for a smooth and successful inspection experience.

    By considering these factors, you can hire a reputable and qualified septic system inspector who will perform a thorough and accurate assessment of your septic system. Don’t hesitate to ask for references or inquire about their inspection process to ensure you make an informed decision.

    Here’s what our happy customer’s had to say about our Cesspool services:

    I’m giving Tom Egan and Mike (including fellow team workers) the highest rating because I believed that everything would be taken care of because Mike explained everything a few times to help me understand what needed to be done to install a new cesspool system and what the old one was probably like! I looked outside in my front yard to find a big hole in the ground…not exactly a pretty picture! I called Tom Egan through the advice of a good neighbor and Mike came within the hour to check out my damage! Fortunately, everything inside the house was working perfectly! After Mike came to give me an estimate, I felt comfortable and ready to go with Tom Eagen Cesspool Service! They arrived 2 days later and were very professional, friendly, courteous, and respectful of not only me but my property. I thought we’d have to dig up a flowerbed but they were able to connect with the pipe deeper under the ground! I treated the guys to a yummy big lunch and they were all very appreciative and stated that was the best pizza they ever had! (Milanos in Commack! Hahaha) Mike had given me a high estimate to cover all the possibilities but I’m happy to say it didn’t come to that and I was fortunate to pay a little bit less! I’m very appreciative of the honor and truth this company lives by especially in today’s times with many companies taking advantage of their customers! Not Tom Egan! They are worth your trust! Ohhhh…notice the mailbox, flower bed, and the new little tree along the sidewalk…none of those were damaged at all! =) Thanks Mike and Team!!!! Owner Tom stopped by to check everything out and to say “hello!” A definite 5 STAR company!

    I’m giving Tom Egan five stars because from start to finish, these guys were honest and upfront. First Mike came out and located my old cesspool which was a scary old block construction. He gave a written estimate for a new installation that included contingencies. He said it might cost more if they needed a crane. In the end, they did not need the crane, so they didn’t charge me. I really appreciated knowing up front that there was a range of possibilities. On the day of the installation, Tom the owner was there and he did some of the interior plumbing work we needed. Another thing I appreciated is that these guys were respectful the entire time. Respectful to me, to my family, and to the property. They weren’t careless and they even came back to clean off the basement stairs. Installing a septic system is a huge job and it’s expensive. Still, Tom’s prices were in line with other estimates I received and these guys absolutely earned it. Everything works great and it’s nice not to worry about the system anymore. Especially if you deal with Mike, you know you are dealing with an honest, respectful, businessman who also gets his hands dirty doing the actual work. 10/10 I highly recommend Tom Egan Cesspool Service.

    Robert Hill

    I would recommend Tom Egan Cesspool’s service very highly. My cesspool collapsed into a huge sinkhole on Christmas morning. Mike came out Christmas Day, evaluated, and scheduled me immediately. They came the following day and worked steadily through the day until I had a new cesspool and overflow tank. Mike kept me informed and answered all my questions every step of the way. He kept me right at the very fair price point that he quoted. The crew was efficient, professional, polite, and personable. They leveled the front yard and cleaned up the street as well. It is evident that Tom Egan takes pride in the service he provides. And Mike is a gem……it was great working with him!!!!!!!

    Kim Cotler

    I can’t thank those who recommended this company enough! Tom, his nephew Michael and Colton were knowledgeable, professional and efficient. They were dogged in their pursuit of my cesspool and cleaned it out perfectly leaving the area neat and tidy. In short, they didn’t do a “ shitty” job rather an exceptional one.

    Erica Rinear

    Tried many Cesspool companies over the years with mixed results. You just want someone honest to get the job done at a fair price. I was backed up on a Sunday before the snowstorm and the only company that would come was Tom Egan. Truck pulled up when they said they would and Mike, the technician on the call, got right on the case got the job done and was patient and informative when answering my questions. That’s the way, uh-huh, I like it.

    Michael Mitchell

    Tom’s company was the second company called in to dig up our septic system to be inspected by the department of health. The first company made a mess of the inspection. From the first few shovels full of dirt, Tom was convinced the system would not pass inspection. While disappointed, it was clear that Tom knew what he was talking about. The septic system that had been installed many years back (by Priority Cesspool/Clear River – don’t ever call them) was done terribly; it was undersized, missing a baffle, buried too deep, etc. Tom worked with our engineer to abandon the old system and install the new. He was there for every level of inspection, follow-up, answered every call with any questions and was responsive on every level. He has been polite and a pleasure to work with, as has been every member of his team. I very strongly recommend Tom and company.

    Michael Appollo

    Tom Egan has always been honest, professional, and affordable. I have trusted his work for 30 years and would recommend him to anyone who wants reliable, quality service.
