Home Buyers Drain Survey Merseyside

home buyers drain survey merseysideRecently, Home Buyer's CCTV Drain Surveys are becoming popular with people buying and selling homes in and around Merseyside. One reason for this is to increase the understanding of the buying/selling process for both the seller and potential home buyer. Many have found, to their cost, ‘hidden’ problems that don’t reveal themselves until they're several days into living in their new home. However, we are also seeing a boost in buyer drainage surveys due to demand from the loan provider, insurer or both. These surveys must be completed before the exchange of contracts.


Whatever the reason for a homeowners drainage survey in Merseyside, it’s important that you understand the value this sort of survey offers homeowners. We're all familiar with regular house surveys that reveal information about the condition of the structure of the building but drain surveys can highlight additional issues (such as root intrusion from nearby trees) as well as other environmental issues such as the potential for flooding. Many of Britains drains date back to Victorian times and can often be in disrepair without the owner knowing anything about it.  The house vendor may genuinely not know of a potential problem when they put the house on the market, and that old phrase, "Caveat Emptor" (Buyer Beware) most definitely applies here. Failing to have the drains checked before your complete the purchase of any property can result in costly repairs later down the line.

A Home Buyer Drainage Survey in Merseyside should be conducted by a specialist, recognised by the National Association of Drainage Contractors (NADC). This gives many reassurances, you know the knowledge of individuals transporting out any drainage works on your lawn regularly obtain skills checked to become around industry standards. Clearly, RPDNW is an experienced drainage contractor. meaning you’re in safe hands.
