CON29DW Drainage & Water Enquiry

There are a wealth of drainage and water related issues which can cause problems for unsuspecting homeowners. Unconnected properties, private sewers, low water pressure, mains under a property and a variety of other issues can all seriously affect the enjoyment of a home.

The CON29DW is the essential drainage and water search for any homebuyer. It explores all the key drainage and water issues at a property, provides clear guidance to any problems that might arise, and comes with full liability cover.

The CON29DW is the official drainage and water search, produced by ourselves in cooperation with Severn Trent Water, using official records for the most accurate drainage and water search available.

The search divides information into four simple categories:

  • Maps – Plans showing all our sewer and water assets near a property
  • Drainage – We’ll tell you if the property is connected to sewers, where they are, who owns them, and whether they’re likely to cause any problems
  • Water – Besides letting you know if the property is connected, we’ll tell you if there’s any problems with water pressure, hardness and whether there’s a water meter installed
  • Billing – Tells you which water companies bill the property for different services, which services they provide, and if they bill the property on a metered basis.
