Does a Surveyor Check the Plumbing in their Report?

Plumbing surveys and heating surveys are an important part of any property purchase or sale, providing vital information about the condition of a property. But do surveyors check the plumbing when they carry out their report? In this blog post, we’ll look at what a surveyor does and doesn’t check when it comes to plumbing.

What Does a Surveyor Look For?

When carrying out a survey, the surveyor will look for any visible signs of damage or disrepair in the property. This includes checking for any cracks in walls or floors, damp patches, and other structural issues. They will also check for any problems with the electrics and gas supply, as well as looking at the condition of windows and doors. However, they won’t necessarily check every single aspect of the property – including plumbing.

What Plumbing Issues Will a Surveyor Look For?

Although they won’t necessarily check every single aspect of the plumbing system, they will look for any visible signs of damage or disrepair. This includes checking for any leaks or drips from pipes and taps, as well as looking at whether there are any blocked drains or toilets. They may also inspect the boiler to make sure it is working correctly and safely.

What Plumbing Issues Won’t a Surveyor Look For?

Surveyors won’t usually carry out an in-depth inspection of the plumbing system – this should be done by a qualified plumber before you purchase a property, such as a Home Heating Survey. They won’t usually check for things like corrosion in pipes or whether there is enough water pressure in your home – these are things that should be checked by a professional plumber before you commit to buying a property.

Conclusion

Surveyors can provide valuable information about the condition of a property before you buy it – but they won’t necessarily check every single aspect of its plumbing system. If you want to make sure that everything is working correctly before you commit to buying a property, it’s best to get an experienced plumber to carry out an inspection first.
