The Detroit Land Bank Authority does not have knowledge as to the status of the water service line on this property. If the water service has been disconnected, the DLBA is unaware of how the water service has been disconnected or where any cuts or other damage to the water service line are located. The cost to reconnect a water service line can exceed $10,000, and any purchaser will be required to reconnect the water service line at their own expense as part of the purchase requirement to rehabilitate the property.
