Home Buyers Drain Survey


CCTV Drain Survey Camera

When you are in the process of buying your dream home in london, middlesex or hertfordshire, the last thing on your mind is ‘Are my drains okay?’ Drains might be invisible but they should be considered as part of the overall purchase assessment. A building surveyor will carry out a full building survey to check that the property is structurally sound and is not suffering from defects such as subsidence or rotten floor boards etc. The CCTV drain inspection can reveal various problems within the drainage system including blockages, bad pipe work i.e. fractures, collapsed pipes or displaced joints and root intrusions,etc.  These could lead to further problems such as loss of water into the surrounding area leading to subsidence.
