What is a Lateral Sewer Line?
A lateral sewer line is the piping that connects the sewer system under a home to the main wastewater sewer line of the city. Although the city is typically responsible for the main line, homeowners are responsible for maintenance and repair of the lateral line. A lateral sewer line inspection will provide both buyers and sellers information on the condition of the lateral pipe, something that is commonly forgotten or unknown to homeowners. If the inspection shows need of repair or replacement, buyers and sellers can mutually agree and build into the contract who is responsible for the work and finances of the repair/replacement and expected repair must be completed within 6 months of the inspection.
