Home Buyers’ surveys

Too many would-be property owners fall into the trap of not assessing their drainage system for leaks, blockages, defective pipes, tree root intrusions and other problems before committing to a purchase.

We can carry out full home buyers’ CCTV drainage surveys at a fixed cost. These assessments are designed to identify any risks and faults and should be carried out alongside the general property checks undertaken by your chartered surveyor.
