What is a construction agreement? A construction building is a water agency quality label for the work you want to do above or near a public channel that belongs to them. There is the certainty that you have given the sewers the proper clearance of your new foundations. It also ensures sufficient access to the channel so they can clean or repair it if necessary. There is also the security of these facts for anyone who wants to buy your property, you should come to sell. You will find more information about construction contracts in the following thames Water responses: This is why Thames Water construction contracts are available and are generally required for the proposed structure to receive a construction shutter certificate, also known as construction rules. If you want to build one of our public sewers or transverse sewers (i.e. usually within 3 meters), you need our permission, even if it is on your property. We must ensure that all of our pipes are protected from any damage that development can cause so that they can continue to provide the service for which they were designed. It is also very important that we have access to our pipes for maintenance and repair. 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. The agreement not only ensures that Thames Water has adequate access to sewers or wastewater in the future, but also ensures that the proposed foundations are designed to reduce the risk to sewers or sewers. Thames Water may also require that the proposed foundations be built at a safe distance from sewers or sewers, thereby avoiding the risk of damage. These are more expensive in terms of fees, usually $100 or more, and require your building to be valued before and after construction.
