Buyers are often in the dark about the condition of drains which are often ‘out of sight, out of mind’. When purchasing a property, a ‘Home Buyers Pre Purchase Drain Survey’ can help identify existing drainage issues that could cause serious problems further down the line.
Buying a house is one of the biggest investments most people will make in their lifetime. Yet carrying out a drain survey is often overlooked by many purchasers. A home buyer’s drain survey can potentially save you huge costs in the long run as it covers things a standard survey won’t find. Some mortgage lenders or home insurance companies may even request a drain survey as a condition of an offer.
A CCTV survey reduces the need to excavate a drainage system and is an efficient way to locate and identify both simple and complex drainage problems that could develop into major issues in the future. The survey report will detail cracked, leaky or faulty drains, root ingress and scale build up, providing the buyer the opportunity to make a fully-informed decision before exchanging contracts.
