Party Wall Drainage Surveys Essex
Importance of party wall drainage surveys
Party wall drain surveys are a crucial part of the process when building work is due to start on adjacent properties. When these surveys aren’t conducted, it can lead to major issues further down the line.
For instance, say house B decided to have a basement extension or rear and side return extension, the drainage systems on the two neighbouring properties (A and C) could be affected by the excavation works. This can result in ground movement and it’s this movement that can have a detrimental effect on underground drainage systems. Any excavation works which takes place within 6 metres of a neighbouring property requires a party-wall CCTV drainage survey as part of the due diligence process.
Therefore, to make sure that the movement hasn’t caused any damage to the drainage systems in and around the worksite, a build-over survey must be carried out at house B whilst houses A and C will require a pre- and post- party wall conditional survey, the pre-conditional surveys must be carried out before ground is broken.
Aside from this, building control will expect to see the final survey report to ensure that Part H has been adhered to on the property where the works have been undertaken (house B), and the party wall surveyors will want the assurance that adjacent properties (houses A and C) have remained unaffected by the construction work.
