WHEN SELLING OR BUYING, YOU’LL NEED AUTHORITATIVE INFORMATION ABOUT WATER.  Individual homeowner water supplies (also known as “self-supplied” water systems have their own unique testing and inspection needs and requirements.  New and expanding “adequacy” and “testing” requirements by lenders are issues that must be addressed well before they delay a closing or stop a sale altogether.  We can help avoid or overcome that hurdle.  See our “Questions & Answers” page for additional details.
