Below is just one recent example of the many bad experiences we end up hearing from home buyers after the closing because a well inspection was not completed and a water quality specialist was not used during a property transfer:
Well Inspections Are Overlooked
Wells are such an integral part of the total property and yet they typically receive very little attention throughout their life span. Often water well systems go several years without being inspected, serviced or repaired.
If you are the agent representing the buyer, we encourage you to have your clients complete a well inspection by a specialist–in addition to the home inspection.
One critical step in performing a thorough inspection of a private water well is to assure the buyer that if servicing should be needed, the well is accessible, and the equipment is replaceable. This can only be brought to light through a complete well inspection.
While a thorough inspection and evaluation of a private well water system costs approximately $150-$300, SafeWell Professionals include the well inspection FREE as part of the water testing service!
Home inspectors do not complete thorough well inspections, and not all water well drillers and pump contractors perform inspections for real estate transfers. It’s best to use a well water testing specialist.
Contact SafeWell to schedule an inspection as soon as you know there is a private water well associated with the listed property and help your clients avoid any issues after the closing.
