If you are planning to sell a Jersey property it would be advisable to review your property drainage systems to ensure they comply with the law.
A 2017 communique from the Minister for Infrastructure makes it clear that property surface water running into foul drainage systems will no longer be permitted. The communique states that his department are ‘seriously’ concerned about the impact to the sewers in the island and the risk of pollution in times of high rainfall.
What are the implications for you?
If your property drainage surface water system connects to the foul water system, it will need to be rectified by the owner. If not, it is likely to hold up a sale. We would advise all property owners looking to sell their property to review the situation and, if necessary, contact a property drainage specialist for further advice.
