A sewer scope inspection is one of the most commonly overlooked aspects of home inspections during real estate transactions. While a damaged sewer line can cost thousands of dollars to repair, most potential homeowners choose to forego having a sewer scope inspection performed. This is due to the fact that sewer inspection services aren’t typically included in the cost of a standard home inspection.
