Why Get a Pre-purchase Sewer Line Video Inspection Done?
All sewer line installations on private property fall under the property owner’s responsibility. 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!
Sewer line video inspections are not covered in standard Calgary home inspections.
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 into the condition of the properties sewer line system so you can make an informed real estate decision and gain negotiating leverage. With a video camera inspection on your sewer line, you’ll be able to know if your sewer lines are being compromised by:
- tree roots,
- broken drain lines,
- sewer pipe misalignment,
- and more.
Skip the Plumber – and the Guesswork
Prevent back-ups before they even happen by identifying and solving sewer line issues. If there is a sewer problem identified with your video sewer inspection, you can negotiate to get it fixed before you move in or to take the cost of repairs out of the home purchase price. A video sewer line inspection process takes only an hour or two of your time can save you thousands of dollars.
Though some insurance companies will pay for cleanup and restoration of damage caused by a sewer backup; 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.
