If you are selling a house or property why not be ready for the question and have a full report prepared for potential purchasers or their surveyors.

Subject to there being access into the drainage system and the drains being in a condition that makes surveying possible.

Should it be easier for you we are happy on your behalf to arrange access for the survey directly with the vendors or estate agents. Providing the manholes are accessible we do not usually need to enter the house.

Prior to the purchase of any House or site containing a septic tank or wastewater treatment system, it is important to assess the condition of the installed system that is on-site.
Dolan’s Environmental & Plant Hire will, with permission, inspect the system on the proposed site.


A Pre-purchase assessment will include:

  • Sewage/waste water treatment System Assessment.
  • Full Written Report.
  • Report will detail if the system is in good working order or requires any repairs or up-grades.
  • We offer our Recommendation on remedial reworks if required.
  • Approximation of cost of remedial works.

Our skilled, experienced trained inspection team will be on hand to give you the peace of mind you need and give you the answers that can sometimes go unanswered.

Please note & be aware that we cannot inspect & survey the drains if on arrival to site we find there is no proper access or they are blocked or full of grease etc. We would have the ways and means to undertake necessary unblocking works to rectify those problems but there could be a charge and we would not proceed without first discussing our findings with our customer and agreeing any additional costs so there are no nasty surprises.

Additional charges:
If tank needs to be emptied and cleaned for extensive examination.
