I am in the process of purchasing a new build in the Lake Carmel area, but the seller/builder is still waiting on the certificate (septic and well inspection I think) from the Putnam County Dept of Health so the towns building dept can issue the CO. It took over a month from the day of filing the paperwork for the final inspector from the health dept to come out and do the final walk around. From what I know, no issues had been found but now the health dept is "processing" the paperwork. This processing has reached over a months time and no one can get any answers from the dept of health other then it will be done when its done.

The town building dept tells me everything else is in place for the CO except for the dept of health certificate and they cant do anything until they receive that. Anyone from the area have dealings with the Putnam County Dept of Health and maybe give me advice on what to do next? Thanks.

He says wait since he couldn't get anywhere with them also since the health dept will only speak to the seller/owner of the home.

Notoriously slow. A friend once waited 4 months for a permit to add a room to their house, but since it involved adding to a house with septic, the department of health had to approve before the town could issue the permit. The town was done with its review in 2 weeks, but told her the same thing you were told. It took the Dept. of HEalth several months. Good luck, wish I could help but I think you are in their slow moving hands.
