Thank you for your advice. I am not actually in a deal, but when talking to a potential client I realized the condition of the septic may be an issue. Just thought I would see what others are doing out there in MA in terms of septic. So it seems it would be difficult in general to do the quick closings seeing how it will take two to three months to get the septic checked out. I guess one way to do the quick closings on properties with septic systems and not worry about the cost of possibly replacing the septic,would be to automatically figure in replacing the septic system regarless of the report when going into the deal. That way I would be covered whether or not the septic needed to be replaced.
Where abouts in MA do you invest? You can email me offline if you like(or not at all…I just appreciate your input!!).
Thanks again for your advice.
