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.

Water Well Permits

No private water supply shall be drilled without first submitting a completed Water Well System Permit Application and fee to the Harper County Appraiser's Office.  

Wastewater Disposal Permits

Environmental Services oversees the construction of new private wastewater disposal systems and the repair of existing systems.
