New search from 1st April 2021.
The Commercial DW is our brand-new drainage and water search for non-residential properties. Containing even more information than our residential CON29DW along with £10 million liability cover, the Commercial DW is an essential purchase in any property transaction.
The Commercial DW provides invaluable information regarding the drainage and water services at a given property. Compiled directly from Severn Trent Water records, the search includes detailed maps of public sewer and water mains, alongside a wealth of information regarding assets serving and affecting the property.
+ VAT per report
The search divides information into four simple categories:
- Maps – plans showing public sewers, water mains and other assets including manholes, drains and pumping stations near the property.
- Drainage – the search tells you if the property is connected to public drainage, their proximity to the property (including any within the property boundary – important for any development work), sewer flooding, adoption agreements, wayleaves, trade effluent agreements, as well as other important information.
- Water – includes connection information, details of up to four water meters serving the property (with more available on request), proximity and status of water mains, as well as essential consumer information such as problems with water hardness or pressure.
- Billing – We’ll tell you which companies are responsible for water and sewerage services at the property. We will also confirm if the property is likely to be billed by a retailer in the open water market or by the local water and sewerage company.
The Commercial DW comes with £10 million liability cover, providing you with complete peace of mind. In addition, the comprehensive report is compiled from official water company records. And if you require further information on anything contained within the report, our staff can provide a comprehensive answer to any follow-up queries you may have, either directly, or through our access to Severn Trent Water’s team of experts.
Outside the Severn Trent region
Unsure if your property is within the Severn Trent region? Not a problem. Although the Commercial DW is exclusive to Severn Trent, all water companies have their own searches for commercial properties, and we’ll happily source one for you for a set price of £100.00 (£120.00 incl. VAT) nationally, or £200.00 (£240.00 incl. VAT) for properties within the Yorkshire Water region.
If you’re not happy with your search
In the unlikely event that you’re not happy with our service, our full complaints procedure is detailed in the appendix of the Commercial DW. If you make a complaint and we are unable to resolve it to your satisfaction, you may refer your complaint to an independent body of your choice. We will co-operate fully with the Ombudsman during an investigation and comply with their final decision.
