Benefits of Pre-Purchase CCTV Drain Surveys
The CCTV inspection survey itself involves investigating a property’s drainage as a whole but is not just useful for finding damage or drainage issues. All of the information uncovered in the home buyer drain survey is useful to have during the purchase process, either to negotiate a better price, or to plan the works required ready to move into the property.
Pre-Purchase Report Information
The information compiled in a CCTV drainage report may help buyers and sellers get a property sale over the line, but Drain Doctor also compile useful insights into the drainage system.
Drainage System Responsibility
The CCTV drainage report will ascertain who is responsible for the drainage and sewage systems around the property, something not considered until a drainage problem such as a leak or blocked drain occurs. Much like a property boundary report, the insight from a CCTV drainage inspection will help you avoid confusion, neighbour disputes and legal problems.
Our pre-purchase drain survey will include a map of the drainage and sewage system, which will save the expense of investigating this if any urgent repairs are required. It’s also beneficial to have this information in case you sell the property in the future.
Using state of the art CCTV drainage cameras, Drain Doctor customers will receive a detailed report, inclusive of images and video from the CCTV survey equipment. The details collated are useful to refer to when selling or purchasing a property and our engineers will be happy to explain any drainage faults and highlight the remedial work required.
Uncover Loose or Damaged Connections
Without CCTV drainage footage, homebuyers may not be aware of any pipes not connected properly that could lead to leaks and incorrect flow levels. A pre-purchase survey will identify and report any such issues before they worsen. Pre-purchase reports are even useful for new build properties, and we are often called by home builders to ensure the drainage is up to the expected standards.
