Even though your home may not be
located near the sea or a river, don't be
complacent and think that flooding is
not a risk. Groundwater and surface
water flooding are also real issues for
homes across the country.
Do you know what soil is under your
home and whether it could present
a ground stability issue in the future?
By having a clear picture of the
geology around your property, you
can better understand whether there
may be any ground stability risks.

Do you know whether your home is
located near any proposed energy
or infrastructure developments?
For example, is the property close to
the route of the proposed HS2 rail line,
or are there any plans to erect a new
wind turbine in view of your home?
Do you know what the Local Plan is
around the property in question, and
whether there are any current planning
applications in place that could have an
impact on the area?
For example, are there any plans to
build on a nearby site that is currently
a green space, which may change
your outlook on the area or lead to an
increase in traffic movements?
