Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Brighouse, and will the chartered surveyor search for any water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a home will be secure against flood damage, and the value of a home in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via badly fitted air bricks. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

In the region of Brighouse, the River Calder and its tributaries from Todmorden to Brighouse status at 11:40 on 2/01/13 was 'No warnings' (source: Environment Agency).

Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Additional local Brighouse area conjectures like service connections, are made in addition to any environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.
