Homebuyer’s Drain Survey

Why Should I Get a Home Buyers Drain Survey?

Purchasing a home in areas like Manchester, Bolton, St. Helens, Warrington, Leigh, and Newton-Le-Willows necessitates thorough inspection, including below the surface. A Home Buyers Drain Survey is a critical step in this process, ensuring that your investment is secure, both visibly and in the often-neglected underground aspects. Here’s why this survey is indispensable in these areas

Uncovering Hidden Drainage Issues:

It's crucial in detecting potential problems like blockages or damage, especially in the diverse architectural landscapes of Manchester and its surrounding areas. Early identification can prevent costly future repairs.

Ensuring Regulatory Compliance:

Our surveys include checks for local drainage regulations compliance, which is particularly important in areas with specific local guidelines like Manchester.

Leverage in Negotiations:

Knowledge of any drainage issues, particularly in areas like Warrington and Leigh, can be leveraged in property negotiations, potentially reducing the purchase price.

Accurate Assessment of Property Value:

Understanding the drainage system’s condition is vital for evaluating a property's value, especially in rapidly developing areas like Newton-Le-Willows.


Leaking drains and pipes are significant causes of subsidence, a concern in varying soil types found across regions like Bolton and St. Helens. Drains contribute to approximately 15-20% of all subsidence instances.

Planning for Future Home Improvements:

For those considering renovations, our survey provides insights into the existing drainage layout, crucial for areas with older housing stock like Bolton and St. Helens.

Facilitating Insurance Processes:

Our detailed NADC approved survey reports can streamline the insurance policy acquisition, particularly relevant in regions prone to specific environmental challenges.

Peace of Mind for Your Investment:

Knowing the condition of the property's drainage system offers confidence in your investment, a significant consideration in the dynamic property markets of Manchester and surrounding areas.
