Why Get a Pre-purchase Sewer Line Inspection Done?
All sewer line installations on private property falls under the property owner’s responsibility, therefore when purchasing a home or business it is important to understand the current structural integrity and functionality of the sewer line system. If there is an existing problem with the sewer line system all costs associated with repair or replacement are at the owner’s expense, don’t get caught by these unforeseen expenses. Standard home inspections do not cover the structural integrity or condition of sewer and drainage line systems. Our pre-purchase inspection will help you gain valuable insight about the condition of the properties sewer line system so you can make an informed real estate decision and gain negotiating leverage.
Although insurance companies will usually pay for cleanup and restoration; repair or replacement of the sewer line is typically excluded, In Canada it’s estimated that the average cost to repair or replace what’s known as a lateral (the sewer pipe connecting a house to a municipal sewer line) could cost property owners between $5,000 – $25,000 and loss of valuable personal property.
