When buying a new house, it is common practice to have a certified home inspector check it out. Here is the catch…although all the plumbing, electrical, etc. may check out fine on the inside, who is checking the outside? The biggest loss for a homeowner can be a backed up sewer. This can flood the interior causing major damage and leading to bringing a restoration company out to remediate the raw sewage and disinfect your home. Not only is this costly, but may require you being out of your NEW home until the process is complete. You will also be filing a claim with your new homeowner’s insurance and this will cause premiums to rise….So before closing on your new dream home, have your sewer line video inspected for root intrusion, off set joints, broken pipes, or any other problems that may exist. It is also important that you have an outside cleanout for not only sewer access but this will also allow you to ask the sellers to repair any sewer issues prior to closing.
As the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
