If you're getting ready to purchase a home, the next task on your to-do list should be contacting Next Level Pipe Lining about our sewer camera inspection services in Charlotte, NC. Take a moment to learn why sewer camera inspections can be beneficial when purchasing a home below:
Sewer Line Issues Are Not Always Obvious
Tree roots could be slowly growing inside sewer lines even without obvious signs of a problem. This is one example of how a camera-based drain inspection can spot issues not yet known about. Getting this info ahead of time means you can make a decision with more confidence.
Home Inspectors Are Not Pipe Experts
A home inspector is trained to look for any existing or potential problems. Still, most inspectors aren't pipe experts. In addition, even if a home inspector makes note of oddities like uneven toilet water or a slow drain or two, they may not go any further to find the underlying cause. With a sewer inspection, however, the actual source of any observed issues can be determined.
Inspection Results Stop the Blame Game
If a sewer problem is discovered after you move in, the previous homeowner or real estate agent may claim it was your fault so it's your responsibility. But if you have a sewer inspection done first, you'll have proof of the condition of the home's sewer system at the time of purchase.
Results Could Give You Negotiating Leverage
Knowledge is your best friend when negotiating a home purchase. Should a plumbing inspection reveal a number of issues, you could gain some bargaining power. If repairs will likely be needed fairly soon, for instance, you may be able to either negotiate repair costs with the seller or get the asking price reduced.
Before you sign on the dotted line, contact Next Level Pipe Lining about a pipe inspection. Even if nothing serious is found, you'll have clear documentation of the condition of your sewer lines before you complete your purchase and move in. Reach out to us today to schedule an inspection.
