    What we do

    About Our Flood History Checks
    Need to find out the flood history of a property? We offer a comprehensive history check, giving you a complete history of flooding at your property.

    We can create a full, detailed flood history report within a three working day turnaround time.

    Flood Risk Reports
    Our Property Flood Review provides a powerful combination of the best available flood history data, including national and local flood records.

    All reports are compiled in line with the latest Law Society practice note guidance, as well as being reviewed by specialists.

    Flood Survey
    Get site-specific flood mitigation advice for your property or business. If you’d like to go one step further, take a look at our flood surveys.

    Budget Mitigation Costs
    We can provide you with budget costs for any associated mitigation methods that are recommended too, giving you a clear picture of exactly what’s required and how much it will cost.

    The Property Flood Review report is the perfect follow up report, where a flood risk may have been identified within an environmental search undertaken by your conveyancing solicitor (e.g. Red Flag or Further Action). The additional local searches and detailed property analysis by Ashfield’s expert flood risk consultants provides greater confidence in the degree to which flooding may affect the property. Our assessment can lead to a downgrading of risk, where additional evidence or expertise can support this and, where this is not possible, our assessment provides further confidence and next steps to help make that all-important buying or selling decision.


    What Is My Flood History?
    Home and business owners are becoming increasingly aware of the risks associated with flooding and climate change. Ashfield can quickly and economically undertake a comprehensive history check that can help you better understand the flood history of a property or area.

    Knowing the flood risk of a property can help if you’re thinking about moving to a new house, looking for affordable home insurance, or just want to be better prepared in the future.
