Home Buyers or Pre-Purchase CCTV Drain Survey

The last thing that crosses your mind when having a survey carried out are the drains. A majority of people will hire a surveyor to carry out a full assessment of their property; but for the lowest price they can get.

Compared to today, the process back then was simple,a surveyor arrives, carries out an inspection of the property and give 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 survey report.

The surveyor will instruct you to hire a company who have the right 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.

Illegal Drain Connections

A misconnected drain is a result of poor quality building work and plumbing mistakes. This can have a devastating impact on the drainage network.

The foul water sewer takes waste water from toilets, bathrooms and kitchens to sewage works for treatment. The surface water sewer takes rainwater send it to a local water network. If your property has waste water pipes going to a surface water sewer intended for rainwater only, it will cause pollution. This is a misconnection and you need to put it right as soon as possible. The CCTV drain survey report produced by our engineers will be able to identify if there are any illegal misconnection.

Party Wall CCTV Drain Survey

 

If you and your neighbour are considering having any alterations done to your homes; your structural engineer can instruct you to have a party wall survey carried out. As part of this, you will need to have the drains checked to ensure that there are no damages to the drainage pipework between the two properties.

Having a party wall cctv drain survey will confirm the condition of the drainage system before and after building works have finished. If there are any evidence of any defects within the drain pipe work a party wall drain survey will confirm this. This is why it’s good to have a drain survey carried out to avoid the blame for damages which may have already existed before the start of the building work.

Building Over or Close To A Public Sewer

 

Are you considering altering the structure of your existing property by making it wider/longer? The water authority will request you to 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. The absence of a certificate could cause problems when trying to sell the property in the future.
