Any Input And Advice Water Clearance Certificate Drainage Registered Sepa

Private water supply coming from land owed by a third party to 3 different houses and septic tank is share by 2 houses, what could the implications be, fifty plus year old properties. Any advice would be great.

this is normally only being enforced at the moment when properties change ownwership.
You need to register the treatment system with SEPA who will hopefully (in the case of a long established installation) just issue the discharge permit
Here's the web link to register it http://apps.sepa.org...es/welcome.aspx
In our case because it was a new system it took a while to find a system that both SEPA and building control were happy with, and building control would not issue the building warrant until SEPA were happy and had issued the discharge permit.
Is this a house you are buying or selling or a plot?
If it's for a new build then I would not guarantee that an old system, particularly if shared, will be acceptable for a new build.

The Water Clearance Certificate, I have no idea what that is, its a hill supply from land not within the property boundary. I accept the risk of quality of water can change but do not the risk of being "cut off" New water holding tanks were put in recently probably via a grant shared by 3 properties.

A big risk with hill water (I presume you mean from a burn) is sheep urine.
Again an old system may not be registered so that too will require an abstraction licence
