Official Drainage and Water Search

Official Drainage and Water Search CON29DW

The Law Society introduced CON29DW Drainage and Water enquiry in 2002, aiming to provide a standard form of drainage search in property conveyancing.

The report provides the most up-to-date information on water supply, the status of the sewer connection and the current billing arrangements – for example, is a water meter fitted?

This information was historically included in a local authority search, but that no longer applies, making as Drainage and Water Search an essential report for all property buyers.
