Home Buyers Drain Survey

Why are home buyers drain surveys so important?

Buying a house is a costly and involved process, which is why it’s so vital that prospective buyers get a full and thorough appraisal of any potential risks and faults with the drainage system before they become a problem.

For homebuyers, a general house survey is a mandatory part of the purchasing process, with many mortgage providers and insurers requiring a full surveyor’s report before they agree to get involved.

However, the property’s drainage system can often get overlooked – partly because surveyors lack the equipment and expertise to properly assess the condition of the drains, and partly because drainage-related risks are often forgotten about by the buyer.

Our team at Jet2Clear can provide you with a thorough home buyers drain survey and appraisal of the condition of your new home’s drainage system, giving you full visibility into any work that may need to be done before you can complete your purchase.

Many mortgage lenders now require that a Homebuyers Drain Survey be carried out before purchase, and could actually help to reduce your mortgage repayments and fees. A home-buyers drain survey will give you the confidence that you are buying a property that is protected from drainage disasters, such as flooding, subsidence or collapse. Should your drain survey uncover any hidden drainage issues, the formal written survey report can be used to support negotiations on the reduction in the sale price of the new house you’re buying.



What can a home buyers drain survey provide?

Recording equipment used during a home buyers drain survey offers you clear and indisputable visual proof of the exact integrity and condition of your drains. It eliminates any guesswork, allowing you to see video evidence of any drain defects for yourself, giving you unequivocal confidence and peace of mind that your drainage system is in order. In the event, a defect is found during the survey process the work being quoted is the work that is needed to fix your drains.

We can also help to conclusively determine which parts of the drainage system fall within your legal responsibility as the new property owner, and which parts are under the authority of the local utility provider such as Anglian Water.

Our prices for surveys of this type start at £180 for terraced and semi-detached houses.

Your Home Buyers Drain SurveyWhat’s involved?

We’ll arrange for one of our friendly and experienced field engineers to visit the property at a time and date that suits you. On arrival, we will undertake a complete investigation of all areas of the property’s drainage system that we can access and observe. We will compile a report along with our conclusions and recommendations and provide that to you shortly after the survey has been undertaken.

If the report shows no problems or defects, then that is great news.

The whole reason for doing a pre-purchase drain survey is to ensure that the home buyer knows exactly what they are getting when they buy the house. When we do a homebuyer survey, we are unlikely to find anything that would stop the sale of a property, because all drain defects can be fixed.

In the event we do discover and potential problems will give recommendations and costs for any drain repairs along with the pre-purchase survey report, so at the very least you can negotiate with the seller to take the cost off the asking price.

Many of the problems with the drains may be covered by the current seller’s house insurance, so they could still make a claim. This could potentially slow down the house move, but if their insurer agrees to pay for the repairs, they can actually be done after the sale has gone through.

You can, of course, come back and seek further clarity or ask any follow-up questions. We are here to help.
