More recently, in some transactions, the buyer`s lawyers asked the seller`s lawyers to write a letter and map from Northern Ireland Water showing the location of different pipes, sewers and sewers. At first, when I was asked to do it, I didn`t feel like there were more difficulties, but when this practice developed, I experienced some problems with the same thing. This made me wonder why and how this practice came about. As I said above, I have still not received a satisfactory answer to this question. A side flow is a length of pipe that carries wastewater from your property to a sewer. It is usually located outside your property boundary, often under a public sidewalk or street. Side runoff can pass under your property if you share a sewer with your neighbor. Sewers and side effluents connected to the public system were previously the responsibility of the landowner. However, most of them are now maintained by local water companies.
If you have problems with your sewers or side sewers, for example. B if it is blocked, contact your local water company. All water and wastewater companies are required to provide public sewers to ensure that the area is effectively drained. As a general rule, you have the right to connect runoff from your land to public sewers – although you may have to pay for it. If the company refuses to take charge of a side evacuation or sewer, the owners can contact OFWAT. Building Control is responsible for enforcing building rules (a number of legal building standards). Building Control deals with safety and health, well-being and comfort of people in and around buildings, environmental protection and the promotion of sustainable development. These standards contain requirements for health, structural stability, fire protection, energy saving and accessibility. Soon after, I participated in a sale where the map showed that a drain was running through the back of the property we were selling and behind an adjacent row of about seven properties. The flow was close to the back of the 8 properties. On the map, it was clear that 7 or 8 of the properties, including the property we wanted to sell, had built extensions or garages above the flow.
The buyer`s lawyer asked us to obtain from Northern Ireland Water “an extended agreement”. This could of course have been difficult and we immediately turned to Northern Ireland Water. We told them that the locals were about 60 or 70 years old, so we assumed that the outputs were of the same vintage. Northern Ireland Water has indicated to us that they are unable or willing to enter into retroactive agreements. I was relieved to be informed, otherwise this growing problem could have become a disaster. Your water company has the right to enter your property if it needs to do so to inspect or maintain sewers. You can ask your local water or sanitation company to take over or take over a private sewer or side runoff. You can do this if the canal or runoff has been built or improved to the standards required by the company and is in reasonable condition. The sewerage company must be convinced that the introduction of the canal benefits the entire sewerage system. Anyone responsible for the maintenance of the side sewers or sewers must agree that the responsibility be transferred to the sewer company. If you are not sure if your land is connected to a public or private sewer, you can: if the nearest drainage channel is located more than a hundred meters from your property and your flow is heading to a suitable smoke pit or septic tank, your local authority cannot insist that you connect to public sewers.
A flow is a pipe that releases water and waste from a building and other buildings that are part of it, such as a garage.. . . .
