Community Planning and Development manages On-Site Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) Permitting (Septic Systems) for the County. You must obtain a valid Septic Permit to install or repair a septic system. To install or repair a septic system, you must be a licensed septic system contractor. Thinking about selling your home that has an OWTS (Septic System)? Lake County has a Transfer of Title program. This requires you to apply for a Transfer of Title Permit prior to selling your home to ensure the OWTS is in proper working order.
Per the Lake County On-Site Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS) regulations, property owners of any residence or other building/facility served by an OWTS are required to get a Transfer of Title (TOT) use permit from Lake County Public Health Agency prior to the sale or transfer of title of the property.
