Why might someone in Abingdon need a drain survey?

Buying a new home

CCTV drain surveys are one of the most important things anyone in Abingdon should do before buying a 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 in your Abingdon home.


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 Abingdon homebuyers

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

Unfortunately, some Abingdon homebuyers only find out their drains have structural defects once they've moved in and then have to pay lots of money for 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 our office in Abingdon on 01235 282 365.

The engineer can show you the footage on site and highlight any issues as he does the survey. This is cheaper and quicker for those who do not require the footage or a full written report, however, will not be adequate for insurance purposes.

Build over drain surveys in Abingdon

If you are building a conservatory or an extension to your home, the local water authority in Abingdon or Marcham will need to know, to ensure access to drains is not restricted.
