Home Buyers Drain Survey Liverpool

Lately, Home Buyer Drain Surveys are becoming increasingly popular with people buying and selling homes in Liverpool. A primary reason for this is to increase the understanding of the buying/selling process for both the seller and potential home buyers. Many have found, to their cost, ‘hidden’ problems that don’t reveal themselves until they're several days into living in their brand-new house. However, we are also seeing a boost in buyer drainage surveys like a reliance on the loan provider, insurer or both. These must be completed before the exchange of contracts.

  • Location of Misconnections - these are additional problems that individuals frequently find and so are problematic. We'll bring these to your attention.
  • Root Intrusion- although a tree or large shrub may seem a good distance from the property, its roots can travel a long way and could damage and collapse drain walls or create blockages in your drains. Researching the area and drains will identify when this has happened.
  • Pest Invasion - We don’t like the thought of rats crawling around our pipes and sewers but this is when you uncover them. They could burrow between joints making their properties inside the surrounding earth. This excavation can lead to a collapse of drainpipes and therefore searching for the presence of vermin is important.
