Pre-Purchase – Home Buyers CCTV Survey
When buying a home it can be prudent advice to get a Home Buyers CCTV Survey completed to locate any blockages, damage or fractures to existing drainage or for the presence of tree roots. It can also be useful for mapping to show existing drain system locations and components.
Surveys should of course always be carried out before you exchange contracts or you could be left with the expense and disruption caused by defective or collapsed drains. Defective drains are responsible for a staggering 40% of subsidence cases. Our CCTV surveys will put your mind at rest and ultimately could save you thousands of pounds.
It has become more and more common for lenders / mortgage companies to demand that CCTV drain surveys are carried out before contracts are exchanged. Surveys will satisfy buyers, lenders and solicitors alike.
Drains are an integral part to any residential or commercial property. Out of sight is definitely not out of mind. One of the first things as property buyers we are concerned about is a roof in good repair or issues with damp. Why wouldn’t we err on the side of caution when dealing with a drainage system and have a CCTV survey carried out.
