Build-Over CCTV Drain Surveys Kent
Do you need a Build-Over CCTV Drain Survey in Kent?
The simple answer is yes.
Building over (or even close to) an existing drain or sewer can lead to mass disruption, so you must notify the local water authority if you have plans to construct.
As of 2011, legislation has been in place to ensure that the local water company’s access to drains is not restricted. And, when planning an extension, they will insist that you have a build-over CCTV drain survey carried out before any work commences.
But that’s not all. A build-over CCTV drain survey in Kent is part of the due diligence process of any building project and, therefore, must be carried out once the work is complete. And, should the sewage network become damaged further down the line, a post-CCTV survey will provide you with the reassurance that your building work isn’t to blame.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a build-over CCTV drain survey in Kent?
If you’re planning on building an extension, you will need to acquire the usual planning permission as well as a build-over agreement. This is a legal document that protects sewers and drains from damage and disruption that may be caused by construction work.
To obtain such an agreement, you’ll often need to have a build-over CCTV drain survey carried out to ensure that your building work won’t impede on public drains and sewers.
If you think you may need a build-over CCTV drain survey in Kent, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Certified Drain Surveys on 0800 955 7955. We’ll happily advise you on whether or not one of these drainage inspections is required before and/or after work commences.
What does a build-over drain survey involve?
Here at Certified Drain Surveys, we often carry out build-over drain surveys in Kent to ensure that all pipes are structurally sound and located correctly.
To conduct the survey, a state-of-the-art CCTV camera will be inserted directly into the drain, reducing the need to excavate.
Our engineers will then watch the footage from the survey on a computer screen, inspecting the drainage layout and identifying any existing or underlying issues that need addressing.
Once the survey is complete, we’ll then compile our findings into a detailed report and provide you with this and the HD images from the survey.
As soon as the work is approved and completed, let us know and we’ll arrange a convenient time to carry out the post-build inspection. This will assure you that work has been carried out correctly and has not impacted the public sewer or drainage system.
How long will a build-over CCTV drain survey in Kent take?
If you’re thinking about having a build-over CCTV drain survey in Kent, it’s important to know how long the process takes so you can allocate enough time.
As a general rule of thumb, it should take little more than an hour to complete a CCTV drain survey, but this can vary depending on the size of your property and whether any repairs need to be made (i.e. blocked, cracked or leaking pipes, etc.)
As experts in build-over drain surveys in Kent, you can trust that our engineers will work quickly and efficiently without skimping on safety.

How much does a build-over drain survey cost?
The cost of a build-over CCTV drain survey can vary depending on numerous factors, including the size of the drainage system, how accessible your drains are and your location.
As with most things, prices tend to be higher in the South – meaning you will pay more for a build-over CCTV drain survey in Kent than you would in Manchester or Birmingham, for instance. However, the team at ADS guarantee a cost-effective solution, providing you with the reassurance that the drains on your property are functioning correctly – both before and after the build.
