    Homebuyers Drain Survey in London

    If you’re considering buying a house, it’s important to invest in a home buyers drain survey so that you can find out the true conditions of the drains and protect yourself from inheriting someone else’s drainage problems.

    A home buyers drain survey is also commonly referred to as a ‘pre purchase drain survey’ and this is the process of using CCTV drain camera equipment to inspect and confirm the conditions of the drainage systems. This is to determine whether they are still in full working order and correctly connected. On the other hand, it may also reveal that the drainage system is not in good working condition and will require repairs to resolve the defects.

    Make sure that you’re fully aware of the conditions of the drainage systems before you commit to a property purchase so that you can avoid any nasty surprises later down the line.

    Why Would I Need a Home Buyers Drain Survey?

    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, especially if there is already an underlying issue with the drainage system.

    Before you commit to a significant purchase, such as buying a house, you would want to make sure that everything in and around the property is as it should be. Using CCTV drain cameras, our engineers will thoroughly inspect the drainage systems under the property and compile a comprehensive report that gives you all of the information you need as a home buyer. 

    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.

    Checking that the drains are all properly connected before purchasing the property can potentially save you time and money in the future 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.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      A home buyer drain survey is an inspection of the conditions of your sewers and drains. It is useful for taking an in-depth look through the drainage systems to find problems with the drain pipework. These issues can then be brought to the property owner’s attention to further negotiate the property purchase.

      A pre purchase survey will identify all types of problems with the drains, such as leaking pipes, cracked pipes, fractures, open joints, and even root intrusions. If you’re thinking about buying a property, you’ll want to be sure that these issues are not present so that you can avoid expensive repairs.

      It’s highly recommended to get a drain survey before you fully invest in buying a property. This is so that you have a better understanding of the property to help you make informed decisions when buying. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing that the drains are working as they should be with no problems.

      Pricing for a pre purchase drain survey may vary depending on the size of the property and how complex a drainage system is.

      First, our engineers will need to locate the drainage system and then begin setting up the appropriate equipment.

      Next, our engineers will lower a CCTV camera into the drain pipe. The camera will be attached to a long cable, which they will feed down into the drain.

      Once the camera is in place, our engineers can begin operating it remotely. The camera will send live footage back to the top, allowing us to see what’s going on inside the drain.

      We use the CCTV camera to inspect the condition of the pipe, looking for any cracks or damage. We can also use it to identify blockages and build-ups of debris.

      Once we’ve completed our inspection, we simply remove the camera and cable from the drain, and we then start compiling a comprehensive drainage report with detailed information and high-quality images.

      Our engineers will also provide their expert recommendations and costings for problems they may find.
