Solicitors enquirys regarding septic tank

I have received 18 enquiries from solicitors re my septic tank, one such is does it conform to BS6297: 1983, my house was built in 1535, extended in 1983 and Ive owned since 1993. This question didnt arise when i purchased the property, on the plans for the extension in March 1983, it shows the septic tank as "existing", which suggests it was there before the extension was carried out. How can i find out if it complies?

  • First find out what British Standard BS6297: 1983 requires. You could ask whoever maintains the tank for you. Or you could answer the solicitor witgh 'don't know' and if the buyer really cares they can commission an expert assessment at their own expense.
