Thirdly – the risk of damage to the building due to sewer failure is not excessive with regard to: first, whether construction, extension or work support – we have an agreement or a “protocol” with a number of LABCs and certified inspectors who give them the power to authorize potential overexploitation of construction on our behalf, provided they meet certain criteria. How is sewer and sewer ownership determined? The property that starts the flow race is called the “race head.” This pipe is private. Once the tube crosses the border into the sdrittland, it becomes a “side runoff.” As soon as the second property connects to the lateral flow, the pipe becomes a “public channel.” All sewers and sewers built prior to July 1, 2011 and connected to our system are part of the public sewer system, which is owned by Thames Water and maintained by Thames Water. There are different applications for different sizes of sewers. Class 1 1,160mm diameter or small (indoor/commercial) class 2,160 – 375mm diameter Class 3 greater than 375mm diameter For all classes except internally, we must conduct a closed circuit survey (CCTV) before starting work to determine if repair work is required. Further investigation is required when your building is completed to verify that the sewers have not been damaged. If you have not obtained our agreement, we may, in certain circumstances, request that you stop your work and that buildings built above public sewers should be demolished. We encourage you to contact us at an early stage to avoid any delays or other problems. Build over-agreements are a complex area both technically and legally and those who are not professional developers should consider seeking professional advice. A professional civil engineering consultant, with particular experience in building contracts, sewers and foundations, should be put in place.
The cost of damage to sewers or foundations, without agreement or agreement, can be prohibitive. Your contact information A cross-cutting basic plan (which can be made available by us or your statistician) A drawing of the pipeline sites in relation to your existing land and your proposed work. A copy of the drawings you submitted for your approval as a building code. If you are expanding or completing your home, you should always know if there are pipes/sewers under or near your property. If there are pipes within 3m of your proposal, you must obtain permission from Thames Water. We will not know what is needed before you apply and we have seen your plans and associated sewers When you sell your property, we will know that the sewers/sewers have been built and that the work meets our approval. On request, we will confirm this information to individuals or mortgage lenders acting on behalf of a potential buyer. What does the construction tax of an agreement cover? For small sewers (160mm and up) The levy covers: – Processing your application – Technical checks of your plans – Discussion and agreement of design changes – Cooperation with your local authority under the building rules – Granting your agreement – Registration of the agreement on or near public sewers on our statements for medium sewers (160 – 375mm) and commercial real estate.
As above, but with 2 ccTV investigations on the length of the sewers concerned. One before and one after your construction. For large sewers (375mm and up) As above, but with much more time needed by our engineers and 2 measurements. This investigation may be by entering CCTV or man who will be with significant additional costs. The inspector will also tell us where the sewers and sewers are, because sometimes we do not have details of the pipes on our mapping systems.
