In June 2007, many areas in England experienced unprecedented, devastating floods. With over 55,000 homes and businesses flooded (BBC) the cumulative claims to insurance companies was estimated at £3 billion (BBC). Tens of thousands of flood victims were forced into temporary accommodation and almost a year on, some families were still living in cramped conditions with very basic facilities.
The need for a Homecheck Professional Flood Report when you are buying a home has never been more compelling. Although a standard environmental report does provide some flood information, only the property specific Homecheck Professional Flood Report features clear assessment and detailed flood risk information from leading data providers as well as providing a valuable insurability rating and information on past insurance claims.
