Why might someone in Swanley need a cctv drain survey?

Buying a new home

CCTV drain surveys are one of the most important things a Swanley homebuyer should do before buying their new home.

Building an extension

A pre-build survey can show the location and condition of 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 Swanley property.


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 Swanley homebuyers

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

Unfortunately, some Swanley 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 your homebuyer drain survey, call 01322 805 365 or email our Swanley office.
