When the big natural gas pipeline blew up in San Bruno last September, it got a lot of attention. It killed 8 people, and not in a good way. So, how do you know if there’s a buried pipeline near the house you’re buying? First American Natural Hazard Disclosures now has a database of pipeline locations built into their Natural Hazard Reports. Plus, they have the location mapped by parcel, so you can get a clear idea if you are at risk. We think buyer’s ought to know what they’re getting, and this report adds a relevant piece of knowledge to the purchase.
