What is the required water testing for an FHA, VA, or USDA mortgage application?
Friday, October 26, 2018
The test is required only for well water and must be evaluated by a certified testing lab, and the sample taken according to a procedure specified by the lab. It is often referred to as a “VA package” and includes checking levels of lead and nitrates, confirming that ph is within an acceptable range, and that no ecoli bacteria is present in the water. A lab in our area offers the test for $200, which includes having one of their employees come out to the house to take the sample. Many home inspectors also will take the sample for a lab as one of their additional services.
