Home Buyers CCTV Drain Surveys
Here at Accelerated Drain Services our services include Home Buyers Drainage Surveys. These are now being recommended by building surveyors on houses over 10 years old. Some mortgage lenders and insurance companies are asking for these as part of the lending agreement. These CCTV drain surveys are designed to establish three key points about the drainage system on the property:
- Structural Condition of pipework
- Drainage Misconnections
- Ownership – private or water company
