Pre-Purchase CCTV Drain Survey

pre-purchase-cctvThe last thing that crosses your mind when buying a property are the drains. A majority of people will hire a surveyor to carry out a full assessment of their property.

In the past, this process was relatively straight forward. A surveyor arrives at your property, carries out the inspection and gives you a report. With more and more exclusions on any official paperwork than inclusions. The surveyor is likely to add disclaimers on what he or she can actually inspect, increasing the need for a drains survey report.

The surveyor will instruct you to hire a company who have the right CCTV Drain Surveys equipment to carry out a survey and produce a drain report which will identify any defects within the drainage pipework.  The drainage report will also identify if the property drainage system is: private, public or shared. 

Building Over or Close To A Public Sewer

Are you considering altering the structure of your property by making it wider/longer? The water authority will request that you carry out a survey inspection to confirm the position of the sewer pipes. If it is found that the sewer pipes are close to the proposed foundation work (within 3 meters); you will have to apply and pay for a build over agreement. The cost of the agreement varies from each water authority.

You cannot carry out any building work until you have confirmed the location of the sewer pipes. If you decide to not apply and just build; then you may not get the required building regulations certificate that signs off your building as completed from your local authority. The absence of a certificate could cause problems when trying to sell the property in the future.  This why it is a good idea to have a CCTV Drain Survey.
