Septic and Lot Survey
Part of the sales agreement was perk and lot survey at the sellers expense. From Wiki:
A percolation test is a test to determine the absorption rate of soil for a septic drain field or “leach field”. The results of a percolation test are required to properly design a septic system.
My near the beach property has sandy soil that will absorb more water than soil with a high concentration of clay and the water table appears close to the surface. A traditional septic system may not be possible. Two tests holes were required, the one above was successful.
In addition, the corners of the lot were identified. Stakes with pink flags, trees tagged, and yellow string was used to clearly mark the boundaries.
