Build Over Agreements | Is my Sewer Public?

What an outlandish subject you may think for and architects service anywhere let alone Berkshire or Devon. Well you could be unwittingly in the following situation…

Your builders breeze along, start work or worse are near completion. They then connect your new extension to the drains only to find that your neighbour also feeds into the main sewer via your property. Yes – you have a ‘public sewer’. That is, one that is shared with an adjoining or adjacent owner. You should have applied for a ‘build over agreement’ with the water utility company. Contact us and we will talk you through it well in advance of the build.
