If you’re buying a new home, there are many things you need to keep in mind to ensure that your new house will be safe and in good repair. One inspection that is often overlooked but that is important for your home is a pre-purchase drain survey. Just because drains are out of site does not mean that they should be out of mind.
Problems with your drainage system down the road can be inconvenient and expensive to deal with. A pre-purchase survey can ensure that you don’t have any unexpected problems with your drains.
In many regions subsidence is as common a phenomenon as flooding and may cause extensive damage to property. The cost of repairing the damages caused by subsidence is relatively high depending on the nature of the damage caused. The changes in nature may result in the occurrence of subsidence at much higher rates. There are insurance policies that cover subsidence and in order to sell a property, a subsidence claim would be required that would enable the prospective buyer of the property to obtain a mortgage on it.
