With the Average cost of a house at around £150,000 and the cost for a homebuyers drainage survey only costing £120.00 this could possibly be the best decision you ever make before buying your new home and not after purchase when it becomes your problem.
Wall Tie failure and damp proofing problems were all big concerns when purchasing a house in the 1980’s. Today drainage is now recognised as an increasing concern when purchasing a property. Drainage problems can cause bad smells, blocked drains and in some cases subsidence. If you purchase a house that has illegally been built over a sewer without a build over agreement you could end up with costly repairs in the thousands!
Drainforce strongly recommend when purchasing a house to have the professionals survey the drainage for peace of mind.
If you selling you are house a drainage report is the last thing you are asked for and can slow the process down which is the last thing you want. Drainforce surveys are produced professionally to a high standard and will be accepted to any surveyor, engineer or builder.
