Dave provides a listener with three rules to follow when testing the soil of a property intended for purchase.
QUESTION: A listener says she and her husband are looking for land to purchase. What type of soil tests should they have done to ensure the quality of the property?
ANSWER: Follow these three rules:
1. Always have a core test or soil test done through the local health department. That will allow you to put a septic system on the property.
2. Never buy any property without title insurance.
3. Never buy rural property without a survey. You need to make sure exact boundaries are laid out.
