When Did Build Over Agreements Start

All water companies have legal rights to access public sewers on private land. These include sewers located under or near a property. If the construction permit has been granted by a canal, Severn Trent will still attempt to reach the canal without disturbing the terrain. If this is unavoidable, they will repair all the damage done in reason. If a canal has been built without consent, Severn Trent has the right to reach and protect sewers by any means they deem appropriate. In extreme circumstances, this may include the requirement that all buildings involving public sewers be modified or removed at the expense of the homeowner. What matters is when the land was built and whether the runoff at the back serves only the house or the neighbours. If it was built before 1937 and is divided – it is and it was a public sewer, and an over-construction agreement that were needed. 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. Yes, the building permit for the extension dates back 1992.So when it was built when the new requirements were not yet in effect.

What does this mean, can I say that it has already been defined as a public channel and therefore has been taken into account in the planning rules when they built the extension? There is another problem as to whether there should have been an agreement. In cases where public sewers were built without the consent required under the 2010 Construction Code, the usual penalties and enforcement measures apply. It will be difficult and time-consuming to determine whether the canal in question was originally a private sewer subject to the transfer of the private sewer regulation in 2011, and therefore it would never have been necessary to enter into a construction agreement, or whether the sewers in question were still public and whether a hold-up should have been carried out. According to the 2010 building code, Scheme 1, Part H4, the agreement of a legal undertaker is required for construction work on a public sewer. When „public pollution channels“ and „public surface water channels“ pass underground, an owner of such land cannot build on or within the distribution line of such a channel without the approval of the regional wastewater operator. This is called „Build over Consent“ or „Building over Agreement.“ Such an agreement allows the legal undertaker to access the sewers for maintenance purposes.
