Home Buyers Drainage Survey – Essex

Home Buyers Drainage Surveys are becoming increasingly popular. An ever-growing number of mortgage lenders now require them as part of the mortgage application and building surveyors advise clients to have them carried out prior to exchange of contract.

Drainage surveys are important, they will identify defects in the underground drainage system of your new home. A survey will also ascertain drainage ownership and misconnections.

In most cases the drain will require high pressure jetting to clean the drain prior to surveying, this ensures that the footage, photographs and report will be of the highest quality.

A typical home buyers CCTV drain survey on a standard 3 bedroom home will take about three hours, the first hour to clean the drainage system and the remaining two hours to carry out the survey. When booking a survey always be sure that you have been quoted for jetting as well as surveying.

All our surveyors are fully certified by the NADC and reports are provided using bespoke reporting software.
