A word of Advice

Responsibility for maintenance and repair of private sewers or lateral drains (eg: the section which joins a property directly to the main) changed sometime ago,  ownership of the sewer main is the responsibility of the statutory water and sewerage authorities. Whilst the private / property drains and connection shafts are the responsibility of the owner / householder etc
Essentially the householder still retains the ownership of and responsibility for the drain serving the property and located within the property boundary.
