Millbrae requires sewer lateral test before close effective 4.22.11

Just like Burlingame and Hillsborough, Millbrae now requires a sewer lateral inspection when a home is sold. The inspection must be done and reviewed by the City before close of escrow.

The inspection should cost between $250 and $300. If issues are found during inspection or during the City's review of the inspection video, repairs must be made.

The biggest gotcha is this - if the property is found to have a shared sewer lateral, it's the property owner's responsibility to separate the sewer into separate sewer laterals for each parcel. Typically, these costs are split 50/50. It's the selling owner who has to negotiate this split.
