    Is a Home Buyer’s Drain Survey Required?

    Your mortgage provider may well request a drain survey report before they lend you any money to buy a property. Insurance companies may also request a drain survey to be carried out on the property, particularly if it is a period property or one built on land that is prone to flooding. Home Buyer’s Drain Survey reports will usually satisfy parties that require information about your drainage system such as solicitors.

    First time property buyers don’t always know that a drain survey will provide all the relevant information and save the buyer time and money in the long run. Therefore, it is recommended that all home buyers request a home buyer’s drain survey to be sure that the home they intend to purchase has a drainage system that is working efficiently without any current or developing problems. In the case that issues are discovered within the drainage system, they can then be addressed by the seller or used as leverage by the home buyer to renegotiate the selling price.

    Who’s Responsible For My Drains?

    If the water company owns the drainage system surrounding your home, they will be prompted to resolve the problem before it causes the homeowner any issues.

    Drainage on your land is usually your responsibility, so it is paramount you keep your drains cleared and maintained to ensure correct operation of your drainage system and to avoid any costly issues later on.

    RICS buildings surveyors cannot carry out an in-depth survey to the main parts of the drainage systems structure, so buyers are often unaware of the issues their potential new home could have beneath the surface. This is why a Home Buyer’s CCTV Drain Survey is always recommended so that the drains can be properly assessed before any money is exchanged on a property.

    A growing number of insurance companies are now asking for a home buyer’s report as they are not aware of the true overall condition of any homes’ drainage system. Call our team for FREE to find out more.

    How Long Does a CCTV Drain Survey Take?

    The length of time taken to conduct a CCTV drain survey on a home can vary. It typically depends on the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and washing rooms the house contained; the more drains your home has will increase the time required to survey the entire system.

    Typically, a drain survey should take around two hours for a standard 2-bedroom house, providing the drain probe or crawler cam can travel around the system with no issues.

    If there are any issues with the camera being manoeuvred around the drain system, our drainage engineer may need to use high pressure water jetting to push the debris out of the way making it free for the camera probe to continue its journey of mapping your drainage system. Get in touch to find out more.
