The content of the Law Society's CON29DW is being updated to reflect changes in legislation impacting the water industry.
Working in consultation with the Law Society, the Drainage and Water Searches Network (DWSN) have agreed changes to the CON29DW to ensure that the Enquiry provides conveyancers with the most up-to-date information available when advising their clients on the impact of water and waste water (drainage) networks in relation to property searches.
In summary the key changes are:
- Inclusion of details on private pumping stations.
- Impact of sustainable drainage systems (SUDs) on newly adopted sewerage networks.
- Removal of water quality information as this is not property-specific. This information, however, will still be available on individual water companies' websites.
- Provision of water hardness information.
The updated CON29DW will be implemented by water companies over the coming months with a view to all members using the updated form by the 4 July 2016.
Geodesys is launching the updated CON29DW on 16 May 2016. Read more about what the changes mean for you and your clients
