Retrospective Build Over Agreement Cost

A Build Over Agreement is a document in which the owner of the house assures the local water authority that the work to be done does not affect public sewers under or near. It also defines the rights of access of local water authorities to sewers so that they can continue to repair and maintain them. If you plan to build near or over a supposed sewer, you should contact the local water agency before starting the work so that you know what their requirements are. If no build-over contract has been concluded, the seller should have a CCTV investigation carried out on the sewers and transmit the film equipment to the water company. If the water company is satisfied that the sewage disposal channel is in good condition, it will issue a comfort letter confirming that the sewage disposal channel is in satisfactory condition. The comfort letter usually convinces the buyer and their lender that the water company will not take any action to demolish the offensive structure above the public sewers. If the winter garden was built more recently without a build-over agreement, the same sanctions and solutions are available. Interestingly, if the winter garden required a building permit, the construction inspector may need to consult a construction agreement before cancelling the work. Sometimes problems arise when homeowners try to sell their property, partially or entirely built over a public sewer.

Winter gardens and extensions are the usual culprits. If no construction contract has been concluded during the execution of the work, the water company has the legal right to enter the land to access the sewers, even if this means that the structure above the sewers will be demolished. However, the Water Company will not cause damage to the extent possible and will look for other ways to access the sewers, but the risk remains. If a Build Over agreement has been reached, the water company is not allowed to remove or demolish the structure above the sewers. All funeral homes have legal rights of access to public sewers located on private land. These include sewers located below or near a property. If permission has been granted for construction, sewers usually try to reach the sewage disposal channel without disturbing the land.. .
