Launched by the Law Society, the CON29DW Drainage and Water Enquiry is a vital part of the conveyancing process and provides critical information about water and sewerage services.

CON29DW identifies potential risks which could impact on the value, title and maintenance costs of the property.

Supported by robust and underwritten guarantees, the search comprises 23 standard questions answered by the relevant water company.

The results include:

  • connection information
  • location of assets marked on an official plan
  • adoption and build-over agreements
  • internal sewer flooding problems
  • legal issues that could limit future developments such as extensions.

In summary, it provides essential and potentially deal-breaking information with a clear trail of responsibility back to the water company.


Other services we can provide relating to CON29DW include:

  • additional parcels searches for residential property at a reduced price. The additional parcel must be ordered at the same time as the original search and does not qualify for any discounts
