What is a homebuyer’s drain survey?

A homebuyer’s drain survey is a CCTV drain survey that occurs before the sale of a house to assess the state of the property’s drainage systems.. Your drainage engineer will give you a detailed overview of the property’s drains, including how well they are working, and whether there is any damage that may cause problems further down the line.

How does it work?

Once you book your drain survey, the engineer will use push rod camera equipment in your drains, identifying any hidden drain problems that you may not have known about previously. They will produce evidential reports with recorded images that you can refer back to when amending your purchase offer, or looking into repair costs.

During the drain survey, the engineer will be looking for

  • Fractures
  • Leaks
  • Blockages
  • Root intrusions
  • General collapses
  • Access points that have been built over

Should I get a drain survey before buying a house?

Yes! Getting a pre-purchase drain survey is a great idea.

The drain survey is completely tailored to your property, and your expert drainage engineer will give you advice based on the individual needs of your property and your budget.
