That’s not really something you can DIY.
Do You Need a Septic System for Vacant Land in Florida?
If there isn’t a sewer system available on the vacant land you’re buying, you’ll probably need to have one installed (unless, of course, you prefer a “rugged” lifestyle).
Is the Vacant Land Served by a Sewer?
Ask your Realtor® to determine whether the vacant land you’re interested in buying is served by a sewer. Your Realtor will likely ask the seller or look up public records to find the answer for you.
Chances are good that if the property has municipal water, it’s also hooked up to a sewer system.
However, properties that rely on well water or that are located in rural, sparsely populated areas may need a new septic system installed. (If you’re buying a farm in Florida, especially if it’s a large one, it probably uses its own septic system.)
No Sewer, No Sale?
If the property you’re interested in buying does not have a sewer, that doesn’t mean it’s off limits. You can ask the seller to have a septic system installed or you could purchase the property and bear the expense of septic system installation yourself.
Remember that if you’re installing a septic system, you’ll have to stick to local regulations about where you can build your home, how close it can be to water sources, and where it needs to be in relation to the road, the driveway, other buildings, and property lines.
