    Are The Drains In The Property Correctly Installed

    Section 109 Water Industry Act 1991 says it’s illegal to have drains in a property connected in the wrong way. Misconnected drains were made illegal by the Environmental Act 1990 and are the responsibility of the property owner to fix.

    As a professional drainage company, we would always recommend that any new homebuyers to having a Pre-Purchase Drain Survey or a homebuyer drain survey carried out before they committing to signing because if after you move into your new property you discover defects within the drainage system this could turn out to be quite costly.

    CCTV Camera surveys these days are not only used for fault finding once a problem has been identified, it is now very common practice for potential home purchasers to request a drain survey before completing the sale. Given the potential cost of drain repairs, CCTV surveys can definitely pay for themselves many times over.

    The home buyer drain survey report will identify any issues within the drainage system, including blockages, fractures, collapsed pipes, displaced joints, root intrusions, misconnections, or leaks that could lead to subsidence and preventing the homebuyer from inheriting problems and not breaking the law.
