A lateral drain is that part of a private drain outside the boundary of a property to the point at which it connects with a sewer.

How do I know if my drains are blocked?
If your drain is blocked you will usually know because your waste will stop going away when you flush the toilet, or gullies outside will overflow. There will also probably be a smell around drains and inspection chambers. If none of your neighbours are affected then the likelihood is that your drain is blocked. If your neighbours are also affected it is likely that there is a problem on the sewer.
What shall I do if my drains are blocked?
Responsibility for the clearance of blockages in and repairs to private drains usually lies with the property owner. Check first to see if you are covered by any insurance schemes you may have. If you cannot clear the blockage yourself, you can contact a specialist drainage contractor or plumber to clear the drain and/or carry out any repairs.
