Unfortunately flood risk is now a fact of life in the UK
Floods are one of the most common and widespread of all disasters. They are growing in frequency and severity due to the impact of global warming and with this in mind we feel it is important to share guidance, practical information and stress the importance of a Flood Report.
88% of home buyers consider a flood report to be an essential part of the conveyancing process*
The need for a flood report when buying a home has never been more compelling. This has been clearly shown by the terrible floods which hit many parts of England and Wales in the summer of 2007 and more recently Cockermouth in Cumbria in November 2009.
There are actually several types of flooding which can affect a property and that is why it is important to ensure the property has been sufficiently assessed by looking at flood risk in a wider perspective.
Our flood reports contain essential data that isn’t included in a standard Environmental Report; giving a clear understanding of the level of flood risk in order to protect investment and future enjoyment of the property.
