Standard Commercial DW


£126.90 (inc. VAT)

Commercial and Industrial premises and development sites often require a higher level of indemnity than domestic properties to protect you from any risks that a property may face in relation to the ownership and location of South West Water sewers and water mains.

Source for Searches offers the Standard Commercial DW Search, endorsed by a £2m indemnity against these potential risks.  A Commercial DW search is an essential part of due diligence in purchasing a property. 

The Standard Commercial Drainage and Water Enquiry include:

- An extra overview plan showing more location and water company asset data
- Clearly defined premises boundary which the search is based on
- Location of nearby sewage treatment works
- Location of public water mains and sewers
- Risk of internal sewer flooding
- Risk of low water pressure
- Water and waste water services at the property
- Water hardness
- Area of up to 20,000sqm covered (For larger areas you will require the Premium Commercial DW).

From April 2017, all nonā€household customers in England will be able to choose their supplier of water and sewerage retail services. This is a result of a change in the law under the Water Act 2014, designed to introduce competition into the water industry.

Turnaround time:
Up to 5 working days in the South West Water Region - Please note that time scale can vary for out of area searches. Out of area 24hr Rapid searches cannot be guaranteed to be returned within 24hrs (1 working day) of the order being placed.
