It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of a new home. Whether you’re moving into a larger property or your very first home, it can be an exhilarating experience. However, it is important that you take care to give your new home a thorough overview before purchasing. Thanks to home buyers’ surveys, you’ll be able to avoid unpleasant surprises which can have a serious impact on your wallet.
Here at Drain Doctor, we can provide complete CCTV drain surveys when you purchase a new home. This thorough service will identify any potential problems or hazards which could require costly repair work in the future. They can also be used to identify potential problems or weak points in your drainage system. Understanding the limitations of your drains is extremely important when it comes to avoiding blockages and other damages in the future.
What Are Home Buyers’ Surveys in South Cumbria?
Home buyers’ surveys are detailed CCTV drain surveys which can provide a complete overview of a property’s drainage system. They aren’t just useful for new home buyers either; they can be essential for anyone purchasing any kind of property.
A survey for a new home buyer can be used to give you peace of mind. Alternatively, it can help you to avoid properties which will require extensive repair work. This repair work can easily become expensive and cause long-term issues across your property. The last thing you need, when buying a new home, is to throw even more money repairing your drains when you could be using it to renovate or refurbish the property.
Do I Need a New Home Buyers’ Survey for My Drains?
While these kinds of drainage surveys are always a good idea, they are becoming a requirement for many mortgage lenders. A comprehensive CCTV drain survey can often be a necessary part of the mortgage offer. Here at Drain Doctor, we can provide a complete written CCTV drain survey report, in addition to a copy of the survey itself. This will feature a full technical breakdown, any potential problems and photographs of vulnerable areas.
Mortgage lenders are less likely to put an offer in on properties which are suffering from damage to their drainage system. As these issues can cause structural damage, mortgage lenders want to know what they are investing in.
The Benefits of a Detailed CCTV Drain Survey for New Home Buyers
If you’re buying a new home, a technical CCTV drain survey can provide a range of advantages. In addition to helping you get a mortgage on your new home, a CCTV drain survey can:
- Help You Avoid Costly Repairs – Buying a property is extremely expensive. The last thing you need is to add on the cost of drainage repairs. By conducting a thorough CCTV drain survey of your property before purchase, you’ll be able to avoid locations which require further costs.
- Understand Potential Problems – By understanding the more vulnerable areas of your new home’s drainage, you’ll be able to practice the best drainage care. This could include changing the way you dispose of certain types of waste. This can help to avoid blockages and serious damage to your drains.
If you know that your drains are vulnerable to certain types of damage, this can make a real impact on the way that you choose to treat and care for them.
- Inspire Confidence – Whether you’re buying or selling the property, a survey of this kind will inspire confidence in the property. This can be essential when cementing a sale and preventing it from falling through at the last minute.
Home Buyers’ Surveys Can Highlight Existing Problems with Your Drains
A complete CCTV drain survey will be able to identify all kinds of problems. All drainage systems are designed to offer long-time, reliable service when handling grey water and waste. However, over the years, they can sustain damage due to a variety of different features. This could include anything from blockages to subsidence or even intrusion by foreign bodies and objects.
Thanks to CCTV drain surveys, you’ll be able to spot a range of different drainage problems, including:
- Full Blockages.
- Partial Blockages.
- Tree Root Intrusions.
- Loose Connections.
- Cracks and Fractures.
- Collapsed Pipes.
