15 years being clearly essential

2017 sees the 15th anniversary of the CON29DW. Developed in 2002 by the Law Society, government departments and water companies, the CON29DW has been continuously improved and updated to reflect an ever-changing water industry and legislative framework.

From just two questions in the local authority search, the new CON29DW enquiry was developed in 2002 to include the location of sewer and water mains, the connection status of a property, and billing information. Today, the enquiry comprises 25 standard questions answered in full, from sewerage and water asset information to sewer flooding history and connection information, giving peace of mind and mitigating risk for homebuyers, property owners and conveyancers alike.

The CON29DW is compiled by specialist teams with years of experience using a vast range of water and sewerage data, checking and reviewing each report, then passing the data through various quality and review stages, before it’s delivered to customers.

There have been multi-million pound investments in this service by CON29DW producers in order to improve product quality and speed of response. Today, over 95% of reports are delivered within five working days. To find out more about the CON29DW visit www.con29dw.co.uk.
