MA Title V inspections are required during certain remodeling projects as well as before the sale of any home. The MA Title V septic inspection examines all of the components of a septic system to ensure it is functioning properly. Septic systems can pass, fail, or conditionally pass a Title 5 with further evaluation from the local board of health.

A failed MA Title V Inspection can become a huge financial burden. The cost to replace your system could be anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000 and requires the digging up of your yard. That’s why Title 5 in MA is the law so that potential home buyers don’t invest blindly in a property. The results from this inspection come in the form of a Title V eighteen-page report. A great resource for information or to file a complaint is the Southeastern, MA, DEP Regional office.
