“The Home Buyers’ CCTV Drainage survey carried out by Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage helped us to negotiate on the price of the house we were looking to buy. Thank you for providing a prompt and efficient service”.
Mr. D. – Risborough
We were recently contacted by a family who were interested in buying a new home in Risborough. Having visited the house with the estate agent, Mr. D. was concerned about the condition of the drains. There were signs that some paving slabs had lifted and a number of large shrubs were growing near the slabs.
The Drain Doctor High Wycombe technician carried out the CCTV drainage survey the following day and found that there was a problem with root ingress in the drain that had caused considerable damage to the pipes in a number of places.
In order to remedy this damage, it would be necessary to excavate approximately 3 metres of the drain run and replace the pipes as the damage was too extensive to be repaired internally.
The Drain Doctor High Wycombe office provided a quote to carry out the necessary work, also advising that the shrubs should be removed in order to avoid further damage.
As a consequence of the CCTV Home Buyers’ Drainage survey report, Mr. D. was able to negotiate a lower price for the property with the vendor. He later contacted our office after purchasing the property and arranged for us to carry out the drain repair work.
At Drain Doctor High Wycombe we are pleased to offer a wide range of CCTV drainage surveys for domestic and commercial clients, which can provide a detailed insight in to the condition of drains. We carry the very latest CCTV equipment and are able to work to our clients’ individual requirements.
