Why should you seriously consider a CCTV survey?
A CCTV drain survey and report could save you the inconvenience and extra cost of emergency repair work after you have purchased the property.
A closed circuit television (CCTV) survey can uncover and locate the following types of drain defects:
- Pipe cracks/holes/broken pipes
- Root intrusion
- Displaced joints
- Open joint
- Defective pitch fibre
- Leaking pipes may lead to subsidence
CCTV Drain Surveys are becoming increasingly used by mortgage and insurance companies, perspective homebuyers and chartered surveyors. This is because whilst the drainage system may be out of sight, it is an integral part to any property. Leaking drains for example, are responsible for subsidence in 40 % of cases. The survey is conducted using the latest electronic equipment and provides you with a full assessment and analysis of the drainage system.
Home Buyers Drainage Surveys should be carried out prior to exchange of contract.
A Home Buyers CCTV Drain Survey will locate existing and potential problems in the drainage system. From minor maintenance work such as blockages that can be easily dealt with, to major faults that may cost thousands of pounds and be very disruptive and time consuming to put right.
If your thinking off buying a new home then a drain survey could potentially save you thousands of pounds if the property requires drainage repair and maintenance work.
