Inspections are a standard component of the pre-purchase inspection period but very few first-time home buyers ever consider sewer inspections before buying a home. A typical home inspection doesn’t examine the sewer because it is buried underground. This inspection is relatively inexpensive and quick, so there’s no reason not to conduct this inspection before moving forward with your purchase.
The purpose of a sewer scope inspection is to understand the condition of the underground sewer drain line and to determine if the system is functioning as designed. Imagine purchasing a home and finding out down the line that there are problems with the sewer system. On top of the potentially messy backups, you’ll be looking at a pretty expensive sewer repair bill. On average, repairs can cost between $5,000 – $20,000 and in most municipalities, homeowners are responsible for any problems in the sewer line that is on their property and out to the street.
