Drainage and Water Searches

The Search Bureau is able to offer comprehensive Drainage and Water Searches (CON29DW and Regulated) for both residential and commercial properties.

A Drainage and Water Search is an essential part of the compulsory conveyancing searches that a mortgage lender will require in order to ensure that the property being purchased is safe from any flooding, leaking or damp caused by public waterways and drains.

There are two types of Drainage and Water Search: A Residential Search, or a Commercial Search. The Search Bureau is able to provide both options as part of our conveyancing searches options.

Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW)

CON29DW Drainage and Water Searches include the following:

  • Whether or not the property is connected to a public water supply
  • How the property is currently charged for the water and wastewater services – (metered or not)
  • Whether the property is connected to a public sewer
  • Whether the property is affected by, or is close to, water mains or public sewers
  • Distance and location of the nearest wastewater treatment works
  • Whether the current occupier has consent to discharge trade effluent (commercial only)
  • Confirmation of easements affecting the site (commercial only)
