Gas Pipelines Under Your Home?

PIMMA Graphic

Over a year ago, San Bruno, CA had a devastating gas explosion, and the government is in the process of creating a safer environment. According to Disclosure Source, “The State of California has since enacted five new laws to strengthen pipeline safety; however, official disclosure of pipeline proximity in a real estate transfer has not been addressed by California law.” Right now all the gas pipeline information is not available as a lot of record was not kept or even created from years ago. As always recommended to protect your liability, a seller should disclose any known gas pipes underneath the residential property to the buyer. For further information view the National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS).
