Wet wet wet!

With the adverse and unusual weather that we have been having recently, it is obvious why it is so important that when you consider buying a property you have an environmental search done. Environmental searches show the likely flood risk not only to the property, but also to the surrounding area. Many insurers use the environmental agencies flood risk map to exclude properties from their policies, so the impact of purchasing a property in a high risk area is two fold. Make sure you don’t caught out by ensuring you have the appropriate searches undertaken, because for the sake of £50 you don’t want to find yourself up the creek without a paddle.
