I recently found a decent home to purchase. After looking around, I saw that there is a sewage cover in the backyard. My realtor tells me: "The manhole cover in the back yard is to a 42" storm drainage pipe. It is only surface water and not sewage. It runs parallel to the sewer line in the street and has never been a problem."
Should I be worried and pass on this house? If this breaks, who will be responsible in order to fix the problem?
