Buying a house is one of the biggest milestones in your life, so you’ll want to make sure everything is perfect, which is where Metro Rod Bournemouth can help – with our CCTV Drain Surveys.


A home buyers CCTV survey can help save you a lot of money in the long run as well as give you the peace of mind that everything is in working order with no nasty surprises for the future. By feeding a small camera into your drains the engineer is able to watch and make note of any problems they come across. They are then able to make a fully informed decision on what to do next to fix any potential problems they have come across. 

A full property survey is an essential part of buying a home with most insurance and mortgage companies requiring you to have one and it could save you thousands of pounds in the long run. However most property surveys involve looking round the property and don’t have a proper look at the drainage system as they do not have the correct equipment. By carrying out a full home buyers CCTV Survey before buying a property you will have a complete picture on what is going on within the drainage system. 

The aim is to give the buyer a clear view on any problems so that they are not faced with any nasty surprises after moving in. Anything that is found to be wrong can help the buyer negotiate on price or ensure that the sellers fix it before signing any papers. It is also much better to identify a problem early on and have it corrected before it has time to get worse and become much more costly and time consuming.
