A construction agreement allows the water company to ensure that the work to be carried out will not adversely affect the underlying sewers and ensures that the water company continues to have sufficient access to the canal for repair and maintenance. If you plan to build nearby or via a public sewer, you should contact the water company before carrying out the work to determine its needs. Before 2011, would the public channel within the property boundary be the property of the municipality? If the annex were built without building control, what would be the consequences? If no construction agreement has been reached, the vendor should have a sewer line review and the records forward to the water company. If the water company is satisfied that the sewers are in good condition, they will give a consolation letter confirming that the sewers are in satisfactory condition. The comfort letter generally satisfies the buyer and its mortgage lender that the Water Company will not take any action to demolish the insulting structure over the public sewers. With regard to taking into account the impact of the new foundations and the current requirements of the construction law, which stipulates that the new foundations must have a depth of at least one metre. The depth of these foundations and the extra weight of the new structure can lead to broken leaks or pipes, which can lead to flooding. The first point is that a construction agreement applies only to sewers and public sewers. This is why Thames Water`s construction contracts exist and are generally necessary for the proposed structure to receive a certificate of clearance of the construction code, also known as the “drawing” of the building rules.
Argh hit the posts too early. You must ask the sewerage company when the sewers have been accepted under the extension. I hope that it was not adopted during the construction of enlargement, in which case we would not have needed a construction agreement. For all excavation work within 3 metres of a public sewer or sewer, a Thames Water Build over Agreement is required. Given the density of construction in London and other cities, this probably means that all the work you intend to do for your domain, including excavations, will likely require the verification and approval of Thames Water. So we are close to the exchange and the research has identified a public sewer that works at the back of the house. It is a 1930s house and the expansion was built in the 1990s. There`s a building permit. The well is just outside the wall of the extension cord, perhaps a foot from here.
My lawyer asked the seller`s lawyer to tell us if they have a construction contract, but seem unlikely. I understand that you can build in a guilty way, but it seems that since I have been inquiring about this issue with the water supplier, we are not in a position to remove it now, as has just been announced.
