I’ve always understood that the division of responsibility was the water meter, although I’ve never had any experience with a main break. I know I had a bad sewer line, and had to dig to the street at my expense. I think it cost about 1500.00 to dig and put in new plastic back to the house. I know I had to shop to even find someone who would do the job.
If the house price is really, really right, the repair should be affordable. But I’m talking a deal on the house, not just a few bucks off.
