THINKING ABOUT PURCHASING A HOME OR LAND? LOOK BEFORE YOU BUY

Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District offers guide on what to look for regarding drainage when purchasing property in Clermont County.

Clermont County, Ohio, June 15, 2020 – So you found a great property and have toured the house, noting every detail. But what about outside?  Do you have a storm water grate or detention pond on the property? Is there standing water in the yard, or close to the house? Being informed on what to look for outside is essential if you don’t want to deal with flooding or possible expenses involving storm water structures in the future.

Clermont SWCD receives many calls requesting assistance, and most of the calls involve drainage. This isn’t something homeowners focus on when making the decision to purchase, and they should. Improving drainage can be costly, not to mention what your responsibilities may be if storm water structures are on the property.

Look Before You Buy offers tips on what to look for, who can help, and responsibilities regarding drainage. The publication is currently available on our website at ClermontSWCD.org. Paper copies are available at Permit Central, select banks, and Clermont County libraries. For more information, please call Clermont SWCD at 513.732.7075.
