Sewer Scopes - Preventing a Crappy Situation

We’ll address these myths that have lead to actual clients having raw sewage in their basements – so you are less likely to get a call after settlement about a crappy situation in the basement.

I’m not going to have a sewer scope because:

  • This house doesn’t have any trees in the yard.
  • It’s newly rehabbed.
  • It’s a really pretty flip.
  • I have the sewer line replacement insurance/warranty.
  • It’s new construction.
  • The drains are running fine.
