Homebuyer Surveys

When purchasing a new home, investing in a homebuyers’ drain survey should be considered one of the most important priorities. Buying a house is a costly process, which is why it is so vital that prospective buyers get a full and thorough appraisal of any potential risks and faults within the drainage network before they become a problem.

PDS can provide you with a thorough detailed insight into the condition of your new home’s drainage network, giving you full visibility into any work that may need to be done before you can complete your purchase.

The Importance of Homebuyers Survey

The drainage network often gets overlooked during the sale of a property meaning costly repairs are missed which are then normally found once you have moved in . Therefore, we would always recommend a survey prior to buying so negotiations can be made prior to the purchase.
