Residential Flood Searches
Ordering a Residential Flood Search is quick and easy. At Searches UK, we process many Residential Flood Searches for a wide range of property types, and locations spanning across the whole of England and Wales.
You may not think you need a Residential Flood Search, but it is estimated that as many as 1 in 6 properties are at risk of flooding in England and Wales. Therefore, getting a Flood Search report for each property purchase is becoming increasingly important.
The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) comment: “It is a standard condition of all mortgages for the property to be covered by standard buildings insurance, including flood cover, for the full term of the contract to protect the borrower and the lender. If insurance is not available, then it is unlikely that the property will be mortgageable.”
Residential Flood Reports from Searches UK provide information about surface water (pluvial), ground water and other flood risks. With flooding becoming more of a concern for homebuyers it is increasingly important to ensure this type of report is included within a standard search pack.
- Groundsure Flood Searches
- Landmark Homecheck Flood Search
- Future Climate Info Flood Report Search
These reports provide your clients with greater knowledge of any risk posed to their potential new property before they proceed further with their transaction.
There is a range of Flood Searches to choose from which include Groundsure Flood, Homecheck Flood from Landmark and the Future Climate Info Flood Report, all of which will inform you and your client if the property in question is likely to have flooding issues.
