New septic tank regulations in England and Wales

Overview

If you are a homeowner or thinking of buying a house with a septic tank, the upcoming changes to the septic tank regulations might affect you. It is your responsibility to make sure you are compliant with the new septic tank regulations before 2020. With the new rules, a septic tank can no longer discharge directly into a watercourse (river, lake, stream). Indeed, a replacement or upgrade of the septic tank is required.

See below a summary of your responsibilities, the 2020 septic tank regulations in England a Wales and finally a downloadable PDF summarising the situation, the deadline, your options and what to do next.

You can also contact us if you are unsure and would like to discuss your situation with one of our expert.

If buying or selling a property, you are now legally required to inform any potential buyers in writing if the property has a septic tank as well as provide all information regarding maintenance requirements and the location of the system.
