Would you include an accessory building sewer inspection contingency in your offer or let it fall under general inspection? Potential ADU woes. (Or success!)

I am looking to purchase a home in the Bay Area. We’ve been looking for awhile, we are bringing my disabled Mom with us and finding a neighborhood and home that are handicap accessible has been the biggest problem. We have found an AMAZING spot, it does have a bit of interest but there is $40k owed on solar that might keep the price competitive. There’s a nice 3 car garage on the property, it even already has a septic line that looks like they might have built it out and not installed it. The sink in the countertop doesn’t have any wear around where you would mount handles, there’s no sign of toilet mounting (unless they painted over it). Either way, the entire property is paved so laying a new line would be terrible/expensive, but we a big portion of our plan hinges on that sewer drain working. The county isn’t terribly concerned about sewer inspections, I plan on getting a scope for peace of mind on the main home and my realtor said it would fall under a general contingency, but what about the 3 car garage? Do you think if that line is bunk that the general contingency would keep me protected after our offer is accepted? Would you include it in your offer as a specific contingency? The Bay is cooling a touch but I still need this offer to be as competitive as possible, there will be multiple bids. Thanks much in advance!
