Homeowner Exterior Lines Responsibility
As a homeowner, you know that repairs to plumbing lines inside your home is your responsibility. However, like many homeowners, you may NOT be aware that you are also responsible for repairs to Water service and Sewer/Septic lines on your property boundary buried outside your home. These exterior lines buried underground are subject to freezing, tree roots, corrosion, changing soil conditions, and ground shifting, causing a sudden breakdown.
Repair or replacement, due to damages caused by normal wear and tear, to these exterior lines can be costly and are not typically covered by basic homeowners’ insurance.
