Real Estate Inspections

Well & Septic Evaluations for the purpose of a real-estate transaction are not required by the Boone County Department of Public Health but may be required by lending agencies or in real-estate contracts. It is a good idea to have an inspection done for liability purposes and to prevent unexpected expenses related to well and septic repairs.
