Disadvantages of town's sewer line going through the property

Asked by Desi, Wayne, NJ Fri Mar 22, 2013

What are the implications/disadvantages of buying a house which has town's sewer line going through the property?

Help the community by answering this question:


Hello Desi,
In a nutshell, they will treat the affected part of the property as if it were their own.
Usually towns have an agreement with the owner that they will replace / repair the affected area to a condition similar to the way it was before the work began. An agreement such as this should be in writing. Depending on the extent to which the easement affects the rest of the property, I'd have an attorney review any and all relevant documentation.
Good luck!

Is this something that plays a big role in the resale value of a property?
