Home buyers CCTV survey for drains Essex

Home buyers CCTV Survey for drains, Clacton,Harwich, Frinton, Essex

In recent times home buyers’ CCTV drainage surveys have become more common in the UK, as building surveyors often don’t cover the drains.   Building surveyors now frequently advise clients buying homes and commercial buildings to ensure that they have a drain survey carried out by a fully certified drainage surveyor.

At Draintech Essex and Suffolk we offer a full homebuyer’s CCTV drainage survey and we have the equipment, experience and expertise to carry out your CCTV drain survey and provide you with a full report of our findings.  We can provide a fixed price quote for your homebuyers CCTV drain survey too and offer 10% discount to pensioners and blue badge holders.

Some mortgage lenders or insurance companies might even request a drain survey as part of mortgage or insurance requirements and this is becoming more and more common.

A CCTV drain survey is a good idea on a property you are buying or selling and provide you with the following information:-

  • Structural Condition Reporting/analysis
  •  Identification of poor connections
  • Information on ownership of the drainage systems i.e. is it privately owned or water company owned.
  • Mapping –  we can show the locations of the drainage system and its components


As most RICS building surveyors don’t carry the equipment to carry out an in-depth survey on this critical part of the structure, everything else can be properly inspected apart from the drainage system, so it’s a good idea to get this done yourself.  A CCTV drainage survey will provide all the information you need.
