HM Land Registry
Please note that confusingly HM Land Registry has recently introduced a service which also produces something called a Flood Risk Report. This promises to assess the
flood risk to an individual property but we assume that this is based solely on the flood mapping produced by the EA, Natural Resources Wales, etc.
Survey of Property with Flood Protection Installed
A Flood Risk Report is prepared by an independent Chartered Engineer or Chartered Surveyor and, as set in the introduction, summarises the findings of a survey and study of
the effectiveness of flood protection measures installed at a property. A copy of the report can then be given to an insurer to allow them to assess the
residual flood risk to the property and so give realistic quotations for contents and buildings insurance cover. Please note however that
a particular insurance company is not obliged to take an FRR into account when assessing the terms and conditions for the insurance of a property.
Further information is given on the
government's web site.
As part of the work it would be necessary for us to obtain copies of the available information regarding predicted flood levels, etc, from the Environment
Agency or Natural Resources Wales. This can be a lengthy process and is likely to set the timescale for the production of the report as a whole.
