The 25 questions within the CON29DW identifies potential risks which could impact on the value, title and maintenance costs of the property. The report presents sewer and water maps highlighting public assets, connection details for both drainage and water, build-over consents, internal flooding risks, poor water pressure issues, adoption agreements and additional information.
