Why You Need a Sewer Inspection Before You Negotiate

No home is perfect, but there are some issues that are more difficult to manage and could even bring a real estate transaction to a halt. Trident Inspection Group has seen our share of problems in homes that new homeowners wish they had known beforehand, and they could have known about these issues with a proper inspection. Don’t move forward with purchasing a new home until you have all the facts to make an informed decision. A sewer inspection is often overlooked by home buyers, but it could uncover some costly issues in the future.

Sewer InspectionWhat’s So Important About a Sewer Inspection?

There is a common misconception that if you are purchasing a home, your general home inspection will be sufficient enough to reveal any potential issues with that home. The truth is that since sewer lines are underground, they are not visible to inspectors during a home inspection. If there is an issue brewing, you can either discover that issue with a sewer line video inspection, or you can discover it when the sewer backs up into your home. Most homeowners would agree that the ideal way to move forward is to avoid a disaster in the first place with a sewer inspection.

Potential Sewer Line Issues That Could be Found

With a sewer line video inspection, we are able to see small defects that could turn into larger problems if they aren’t addressed. We would be able to detect any sewer line failures, broken pipes, tree root intrusions, construction debris, clogs, and sags in the pipeline. Our focus will be on the long main sewer line, where we will run the camera up to 130 feet, or until we are stopped by an obstacle, the city’s sewer connection, or your septic tank. These are the facts you need before you make one of the biggest decisions of your life.
