However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises.

The standard completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser may commence a claim for damages stemming from an misleading reply. The buyer’s lawyers may also commission an enviro report. This will reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be made.
