Pre-Purchase Drain Surveys
Do you require pre-purchase drain surveys in Ipswich or the surrounding areas of Suffolk? If you are buying a new property, check the quality of the drains before you purchase.
What is a pre-purchase survey?
Pre-purchase surveys are carried out before a property is purchased, often for home-buyers (whether bought by the owner or the buyer). It means that potential buyers can have confidence that they know the entire situation relating to their drainage. Having this knowledge can be very important as a buyer. It can mean a better price when negotiating, information that could lead to pulling out of a purchase or simply security in knowing that a property's drainage is without issue.
They allow for a good idea of drainage conditions to be ascertained, often accompanied with reports and insight that allow for next steps to be known, which then has the use of being able to be used by potential buyers who can be more informed, which can lead to smoother sales of a property..
What to expect from a pre-purchase CCTV survey:
After having a pre-purchase CCTV survey, one can expect that you will have a good understanding of the current drainage conditions, such as any issues or potential issues such as blocked drains or damaged piping.
Having this information can also take away some of the stress, as there is more clarity.
A detailed report can be expected, and it will tell you anything concerning the drainage, as well as potential concerns.

Do I need a Home-Buyers drainage survey?
There is no absolute requirement for a drainage survey when purchasing a home; however, they do have many uses and advantages compared to properties without.
It is important to note that drain surveys will cover information and aspects not included in a property survey. This is because they require a different set of expertise.
If you want to know everything possible about a house before purchasing, as many will, then a drainage survey is a separate necessity.
If issues are found early, then remedies will often be more efficient and cheaper, and it can allow for more transparency as a seller through potential negotiations if repairs are not made.
There are also situations wherein a mortgage lender will request a drain survey is to be conducted for a property, which shows how beneficial they can be, as can be the case for insurance companies. Drainage engineers can give insight into how much future repairs may cost and the work that would be done (if any) to ensure longevity and that problems don't occur or are being left dormant.
The input of our Suffolk drainage engineers allows for peace of mind that after purchasing property, there won't soon be additional costs, which can even be used to decide on the sale of a property or otherwise.
Our Ipswich Suffolk based engineers can also give information about any potential external issues for drainage problems, such as root ingresses, which can be caused by tree roots or plant roots.
Tree roots can also cause problems to other drainage areas and can cause fractured or otherwise damaged drainage systems. With surveys, blocked drains can be adequately diagnosed and attended to with long-lasting solutions.
