In order to offer a greater range of services to our customers, we are pleased to announce that our team are now able to undertake CCTV drainage surveys. A CCTV drainage survey is crucial in understanding exactly why you might be experiencing septic tank problems, soakaway problems or sewage treatment plant problems. Our experienced team are able to fully investigate the cause of any issues you might be having, giving you detailed recommendations as to how to resolve any problems.
But don’t just wait until there is a problem!
Surveys are not only important when there is a septic tank problem evident. If you are buying a property with a septic tank, sewage treatment plant or soakaway, it is vital that you get a pre-purchase survey of the drainage system undertaken. When drainage systems are no longer functioning properly, it can be hugely costly to repair or replace them. We are often contacted by customers who have only recently purchased a property, only to find that the drainage system in place is damaged beyond repair. Most pre-purchase building surveys will take only a very basic look at drainage systems, and will often advise the purchaser to contact a specialist to undertake a thorough investigation. Ignoring this advice can prove very costly, and can leave the new owner left facing thousands of pounds in costs.
Don’t leave something so important to chance. UKDP will undertake a thorough survey and assessment of the history of the drainage system in place, providing you with a thorough overview of the condition of the system and any problems that might exist within it – including any issues with compliance with legislation. But that’s not all – if damage exists, we are often able to manage an insurance claim on the seller’s behalf, ensuring that any works required are covered by their buildings insurer. This often means that the sale can continue without issue.
