What Connecticut CT Home-Buyers Should Know About Septic Inspections
Before a Connecticut home-buyer has a home inspection, understanding environmental concerns such as radon, mold, asbestos and lead is crucial. Some of these concerns, lead and asbestos, can be an issue only with some what older homes while radon and mold can be a problem with any age home. It is first important to know weather the home inspector is required to inspect for these concerns. Connecticut Home Inspection Standards of Practice clearly state the home inspector is not required or responsible to inspector for these or any other environmentally related issues as part of a standard home inspection. However an inspector may chose to offer certain environmental testing services if they so wish. Therefore it is important to thoroughly interview the inspector on his qualifications to conduct any desired tests before the home inspection.
