Why might someone in Southampton need a drain survey?

Buying a new home

CCTV drain surveys are one of the most important things someone should do before buying a home in Southampton.

Building an extension

A pre-build survey can show the location and condition of the drains running under or close to any proposed building work.

Problems with rats

Rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a 50p piece. A cctv drain survey can identify any cracks and defects.

Surface flooding

A cctv drain survey can identify the underlying reasons for surface water flooding into your Southampton property.

Subsidence

Leaking or broken drains under your property can lead to subsidence. A drain camera survey can identify any defects.

Persistent problems

If your drains keep reblocking or those horrible drain smells don't go away, it might be time for a cctv drain survey.

Pre-purchase drain surveys for Southampton homebuyers

Drain surveys are one of the most important things to do before buying your new home.

Unfortunately, some Southampton homebuyers only find out their drains have structural defects once they've moved in and then have to pay lots of money for drain repairs.

A pre-purchase drain survey can spot any potential problems before they appear, giving the buyer, the opportunity to negotiate with the seller or even pull out of the purchase.

To book a homebuyer drain survey, call 023 8181 3650 or email our Southampton office.
