Sewer lines…to inspect or not to inspect. Buying and selling a home will never be 100% risk free. Read this article, one of many you’ll find and be objective about the conversation of sewers. Buyers: age of home, surrounding trees, etc. Sellers: maintenance. When in doubt: inspect what you expect. In the evolution of home ownership over time we will all need to adapt to many changes that affect the process: knob and tube, federal pacific, underground oil tanks, chimney, and now sewer. Be effective “consultants”, be knowledgeable but beware and don’t act as the inspection experts that you’re not.
