Tell the lender to get a septic tank cert . I have installed quite a few tanks over the years and almost every city and county have different regulations. Also you would not even know where the tank is located because over the years it may have been moved. ( one filled up and another dropped in another location) Don't even try to play septic expert there is to much liability. A licensed contractor will go out measure the distance , verify the system is working and give the lender a clearance. The FHA DE underwriter places the septic certification in her file and it's done.
