What if this delays the sale of the property?

To mitigate any property transfer delays the two participating parties may choose to complete the Transfer of Responsibility Form, allowing for the buyer to take responsibility for all repairs that may need to be completed on the private sewer lateral in order to pass inspection. The new property owner will be allotted 180 days to complete the repairs. Buyers who do not complete the improvements as required will be subject to penalties and could have their water service terminated.
