Sewer or city waste

Going on an inspection where mls does not list if city or sewer waste. No experience with septic. What is best way to determine this besides seeing septic tank or access? Any help would be appreciated.

Paul, There is no way to identify septic from municipal waste from inside the building. If there are no telltale signs on the exterior (septic mound, candy cane, etc) simply note “unknown”, per MLS records and recommend having this researched through the local building department.

Around here, that information can be found in the county tax records, which are available on-line. When sources conflict I often say “public sewer connection (tax record)”.
