The legislation surrounding septic tanks on residential properties is changing. By January 1st 2020, all homes that currently do this must either connect to the main sewage network, create a drainage field or replace the existing septic tank system with a sewage treatment plant.
I work in the industry however, and have found that despite the law change, it doesn't seem to be very well circulated and therefore, new homebuyers are at risk of hefty costs. Someone I know actually bought a house with a septic tank recently but their surveyor didn't pick up on the fact it had an old septic tank, so she ended up spending nearly £2k to upgrade it to a sewage treatment plant!
Anyway, thought I'd try and circulate so other people don't get caught out.
