What We Do...

Flood Protection (PLP/PLR) Surveys

We produce individual householder reports in line with Environment Agency and CIWEM guidance using the standard report detailing the flood risk, the points of entry/routes of water ingress and our recommendations for mitigation measures and priorities and if required, obtain quotations from reputable suppliers and installers. Finally, we carry out post installation surveys to confirm the products are installed as specified and issue a report to ABI standards that will help you get insurance at a price you can afford. All our surveys meet the requirements of the CIWEM  Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Code of Practice  and are carried out under the supervision of RICS Chartered Surveyors

 

Flood Risk Assessments

​Our Flood Risk Assessments are undertaken in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework and can include a simple comment on the possible method of foul and surface water disposal or, alternatively, an additional Outline Sustainable Drainage Strategy.

​More about property flood protection

Unfortunately, it is impossible to guarantee that you will never get flood water into your property, it is nature’s most devastating force and will always find a way in. Having said this, there are a wide range of products available on the market, all of which have been tested and proven effective when installed and used correctly.  ​Due to the immense pressure the water will put on the fabrics of the building, the property may be at risk of structural damage. We therefore recommend that any water that is above 1m deep (from your floor level), you allow the property to flood. If you are wanting to protect above this level you will need to get advice from a structural surveyor.  ​Your home / business is probably the most expensive thing you will purchase and so deserves to be looked after. By investing wisely in adding flood resilient products, it will have lasting effects. Not only will they help you to protect your property, they may also help with insurance and when you come to sell the property as it will stop potential buyers trying to reduce the value of it.

BUYING A PROPERTY IN A FLOOD RISK AREA?

​Buying a house in a flood risk area can be worrying and therefore pre-purchase due diligence is vital.

If your solicitor has conducted a flood search which has shown a risk, Warwick York are now able quantify that risk and offer further advice. This is a very popular service and we are always available to offer free advice on your next steps.

By conducting a pre purchase flood survey, you can complete the property purchase with your eyes wide open, knowing the risk (if any), and of course, how to better protect the property should the worst happen.

We can also provide estimates for any mitigation methods if advised.

Over 5 million properties in the U.K are deemed to be at risk of flooding, and whether commercial or residential, we highly advise obtaining expert advice at the time of purchase. There are various types of flooding including: surface water, river, groundwater, sewer and tidal.

If a property is flooded, it may impact on the value and insurance cover may be harder to obtain.
