Home Buyers CCTV Drainage Survey

15th April 2019

Home Buyers CCTV Drainage Survey

When buying a new home we would highly recommend investing in a Home Buyers CCTV Drainage Survey to identify any faults in the drainage system that could lead to costly repairs once you have moved in.

The cost of buying a house and the associated building survey is already quite expensive, however, if the drains are ignored you could get a nasty (and expensive) surprise later down the line. Our engineers can attend the property you are purchasing and provide you with a complete assessment of the drainage system and any works that may need completing before you complete your purchase.

What are we looking for?

When we are doing a home buyers CCTV Survey we are looking for things such as:

  • Blocked drains or evidence of debris within the drains
  • Tree roots
  • Cracked, fractured and displaced pipes
  • Collapsed drains
  • Where the drains run too
  • Which areas of the drains would be the homeowners legal responsibility

What you will receive once we have completed your survey:

We use the latest software in CCTV survey reporting. Our iTouch system enables our customers to access the survey footage the very same day as the works have been completed should this be required. This is achieved by means of an email viewing invitation that can be viewed easily on most devices. Personal login details will be sent to the customer so the report and footage can be viewed at any time required from anywhere there is an internet connection. Please note the report will be completed in our office and will be available as soon as the footage has been vetted by our projects team.

Our CCTV report will include photographs from site, an updated site drawing of all drains surveyed and a full written report highlighting any structural issues found with the drainage lines.


A quotation will also be provided for any recommended works to repair structural faults.


The speedy turnaround is also good for homebuyers who want quick resolutions to issues so that it does not delay the process of the purchase.
