Who is responsible for your blocked drains?


Drain Responsibility 1200x729


Typically, blocked drains that are within your property boundary are the homeowner’s responsibility, including drains that take wastewater directly away from your home. If the blocked drains are located within this boundary, give Metro Rod West Yorkshire a call.

You are responsible for all drain maintenance of drains connected to your home. Whether it is drain repair or to unblock drains, it’s up to you to arrange a fix unless the blocked drain is a lateral drain*

*The lateral drain is part of your private drain that runs outside of your boundary.

A CCTV Survey could find where the blocked drains lie: in your property boundary, neighbours or the sewer system. Sewers are publicly owned and therefore maintained by your local water company – if you’re in Leeds, Wakefield, Bradford and Huddersfield this would mean Yorkshire Water.

If the CCTV Survey finds that your blocked drains are in fact blockages in the sewer system, then this blockage is not your responsibility.
