As we move into the winter months and the weather begins to turn, flooding can become a worry to all home owners and prospective buyers. It's estimated that 5.2 million properties are at risk from flooding. This equates to 1 in 6 homes!
It's a common misconception that only properties close to a river or sea are at risk of flooding; in fact as many as 2.8 million properties are at risk of surface water flooding from heavy rainfall and high groundwater levels alone each year.
With statistics like this, it's important to assess the flood risk for your client. This simple check can be done by purchasing a Groundsure Flood report. The report uses a detailed water and drainage risk model devised by industry experts to cover coastal flooding, river flooding, surface water and historical flood events.
Ensure you have the flood risk box ticked by ordering the Groundsure Flood report for only £18 (inc VAT) in November and December. For more information you can download our product card or view a sample report. The Groundsure Flood report can be purchased on our ordering site along with all of your other land and property searches.
Alternatively did you know that Groundsure Homebuyers already includes a full flood assessment?
