Septic System Disclosure
Disclosure of Septic Systems on Property Ownership Transfers
The disclosure of any septic system on a property is a state law requirement per Minnesota Statute §115.55, subd. 6 and County Ordinance.  The Blue Earth County Subsurface Sewage Treatment System Ordinance requires that at the point of property ownership transfer that either:
  • A compliance inspection or current certificate of compliance be presented to the buyer, or
  • A written agreement that the septic system will be replaced within 10 months of the transfer.

Note: All methods require a copy to be submitted to the County.

In the case of a winter sale, the seller and the buyer file a Transfer Agreement with Blue Earth County Environmental Services Department. This will allow a delay in the inspection, however one will still be required to be completed as soon as conditions allow and no later than June 1.
