Septic Smart REALTOR®: Advertising the Permitted Number of Bedrooms

Brokers frequently have questions regarding sewer and septic issues and the appropriate number of bedrooms for a listing. If a septic permit is available, the number of bedrooms permitted to be advertised for a listing will be the number of bedrooms as allowed on the septic permit issued by local authorities. If a septic permit cannot be located, you may advertise the number of bedrooms in the home but you should state in your MLS listing remarks that your investigation did not disclose the existence of a septic permit.
