If you are looking to purchase a new property why not reduce the risk of unexpected and unpleasant additional costs by having a pre purchase drain survey done.

Why have a drain survey before purchasing?

Buying a property is one of the biggest purchases we can make. We do our best to ensure we make a sound investment by conducting building surveys before a purchase, but making sure you have drainage that’s fit for purpose can also help to highlight any potential work that may be an additional cost.

And for landlords, having a survey before tenants move in can help prevent future disputes regarding drainage issues.

What can these surveys find?

Our team will send in the crawler, our remote-controlled vehicle with a CCTV camera to complete an inspection of your drains and help discover a variety of issues, such as:

  • Root damage from trees
  • Collapsed pipes
  • Cracked and fractured pipes
  • Blockages
  • Pest problems

When issues are identified a pre purchase report recommends solutions and provides a quote for addressing issues so you are fully aware of what you are dealing with and how to address it. You’ll also benefit from:

  • An instant view of your drainage and any potential issues
  • A detailed report that can help negotiate a reduction in the house price to cover the cost of any repairs or agree repays to be completed before purchase.
  • DVD evidence of inspection

With our expertise and technology, we are able to offer a wide range of drain surveys services for residential and commercial clients, including:

  • Site surveys and investigation work
  • ‘Build over’ surveys for Local water authorities
  • Site development surveys
  • Drainage Routing / Mapping

These surveys enable you to make informed, cost effective decisions and help ensure regulatory compliance.
