Real Estate Transfer Inspection 

A real estate transfer inspection is often requested upon a sale of property.  This inspection consists of evaluating the existing private water and private wastewater disposal system.  Evaluation may involve the functional components of the system, lot site conditions and a historical file review.  

To initiate the evaluation process, a completed Real Estate Transfer Inspection Request and fee shall be submitted to the Harper County Appraiser's Office.  The Harper County Sanitarian will then contact the seller or representative to set a time and date for the inspection.  

Any evaluation provided shall not constitute nor be deemed a warranty, and neither Harper County nor any official of the County shall be held liable for claims arising out of the evaluation.  Upon completion of the evaluation a written report will be issued.
