We are offer expertise in homebuyer reports, ensuring piece of mind
The potential threat from flooding has become a far more prominent part of the environmental due diligence and conveyancing checks during a property purchase.
The due-diligence reporting obtained as part of the standard property searches may identify a risk from flooding to a site. However, this should not be a cause for instant alarm; it is simply an indication that further understanding is required to define any risk that may exist.
For most of us, buying a home will be the most expensive purchase we will ever make. A full understanding of the potential risk from flooding is now vital.
Our Homebuyer Flood Risk Reports, also referred to as Flood Risk Due Diligence reports, provide a market-leading assessment of flood risk for prospective buyers.
Why is a Homebuyer Flood Risk Report required?
Flooding can happen at any time, and at varying degrees of severity. Around 5.2 million homes in England, or one in six properties, are at risk from flooding.
Surface water flooding affects more properties than any other type of flooding, yet is often overlooked.
