Most buyers know to have a home inspection done before they buy their new home… but do you ever think of having the sewer lines inspected?
If not, you should!
If you are considering placing an offer on a home over 20 years old, you will want to get the sewer lines inspected. Trees, tar paper/Orangeburg pipes and cesspools are just a few of the reasons to have the sewer lines inspected prior to buying.
A Sewer Line Inspection involves a camera mounted on a snake that gets put through the sewer lines. Not only will this show if the lines are clogged, but can provide valuable information about the condition of the pipes and what material they are made out of.
This is not usually included in the Home Inspection, but could cause you thousands in the long run. Spend a little now to save a fortune later!
