It is common to have inspections during the purchase of a home. You may also want to have the sewer inspected if you are selling a house to make sure that it is safe and working correctly for the next owners. If you are interested in buying a home in Seattle, it is important to have the whole sewer system inspected, including the main sewer line.
Avoid the Costs of Major Repairs
If you are looking at homes, and decide to have the sewer inspected, you may avoid costly repairs after the closing. It is important to note that many inspections do not include the main sewer line because it is underground. A check with a camera can tell you if the pipes are old, cracked, need repairs, or clogged. If you do not have this inspection, you could buy into very costly repairs in the future. A damaged sewer system can cause structural damage, damage to landscaping, unsafe leaking, and back-ups into your home.
