If drains are blocked or have collapsed, the first thing to do is to clarify ownership and responsibility before modifying or carrying out any maintenance. Drains, sewers and manholes may be shared with neighbours or owned by the relevant sewerage/water company.

Poorly maintained drains are a major cause of subsidence and any subsidence will have to be disclosed if you decide to sell your property and this may affect the ability of the buyer to secure a mortgage on the property. 

We can help you identify any drainage problems and manage the level of risk of subsidence with a range of services. Call today on 07850 617620 or Freephone 0800 1882468  or email at steve@sbbr.co.uk
