Selling a house with a septic tank

Living in the countryside is an idyllic dream for many people, but unfortunately, that dream comes at a cost. As many as half a million homes are not connected to the main sewers, and so they have to have a septic tank to collect their waste.

If this waste treatment system isn’t up to scratch, then it can make your property almost impossible to sell. Even if it is relatively new, many potential buyers can still be put off by the idea of a tank of human waste under their back lawn.

So how do you go about selling a house with a septic tank, and is it even possible if your tank is old and out of date? With a peg on our noses, let’s lift the lid on septic tanks and take a closer look inside.
