With all the recent bad weather it seemed appropriate that we provided some advice with regards to flooding and how it might affect a property as well as the impact that it could have on the insurability of clients homes.
This guide RICS-Flooding-consumer-guide produced by the RICS provides plenty of useful advice on many aspects of flooding including information on how to approach flood risk to property as well as how long it takes to reinstate a property after flooding has occurred.
Here at Bevan Surveyors we come across and provide surveys on properties that have been affected by flooding. Also our surveys give information as to the risk that a property you are thinking of purchasing may be affected by flooding. It is worth remembering that just because a property has not previously been flooded that this is no guarantee that with increasingly it seems wet weather, that flooding will not occur in the future.
