Under MA law when a home changes hands a Title V inspection must be performed by the Seller at seller's cost. If the septic system was inspected and passed within 2 years it is not necessary as the "pass" will still be valid. If the septic system was inspected and passed within 3 years and it has been pumped annually it will not need to be reinspected.
Under some circumstances the seller (a bank owned home, a short sale) can ask the buyer to assume responsibility for all septic inspections and repairs. This needs to be spelled out in the MLS or listing service/documents so the buyer is aware of this. Some times a seller will hold the inspection and upon failure will ask buyer to assume costs. Again this must be spelled out in MLS or listing service/documents.
If you are in the middle of a Real Estate transaction and find out your septic system has failed and it will not be able to be repaired or replaced before the closing, the bank giving the buyer the loan will require you to escrow 1.5 times the estimate to fix or replace the system. For example if the cost of replacing the septic system is $20,000 you are going to required to escrow $30,000. Please note that not every bank will allow a septic escrow. The buyer may end up having to wait until the installation is complete.
As you can see getting your Title V done and out of the way with no problems is a huge deal! If you are unfortunate enough to have to replace your septic system, there are a few programs to ease the pain. See the Loan and tax credit information below:
Homeowner Septic Loan Program
If your septic system has failed Title 5 inspection there is a loan program in place that can help you. Participating banks offer low interest rates to eligible homeowners through this Massachusetts Housing Program.

Forms are available from the Department of Revenue (DOR) to allow homeowners to claim up to $6,000 in tax credits for septic upgrades. The credit cannot exceed $1,500 in any year and may be spread out over 4 years. The tax credit is limited to work done on a primary residence only. Tax Form Schedule SC is the correct form for the tax credits.

The HOA fee is $550 per month. The fee includes taxes, water, snow removal, and trash. There is also a pool, club house, gym, and other amenities included in the fee. I would be happy to show you the mobile home or discuss other alternatives in the Plymouth area.
How much do you want to pay? There are real estate professionals in many different price ranges. Some may charge a months fee, others 1/2 a month and still others for even less perhaps. There is no standard. Hope that helps,... more

Hi, Katmal3 ... there's no address listed here?
Send a note to the listing agent (or, if the listing agent isn't on the right side) one of the local agents, they can forward the information to your mother and answer any questions you have.
If you need a good agent back that way, let me know - I know a few.
Take care!... more

Most of the time it is paid for and done by the seller. There are certain circumstances, such in some short sales, where the seller cannot pay to complete it and list that it will be the obligation of the buyer. Your buyer's agent should be able to help you determine the situation of the properties you wish to pursue.

First of all, find yourself a good buyers agent. I would be happy to help you if you don't have anyone in mind, I have helped people do this in the past.
For a construction loan, Harbor One is great in Plymouth, I recommend them. For a second option, I had clients use Salem 5 who were great to work with and seemed to have lower cash requirements.
Best of luck.
