Flag-up water and drainage risks that may threaten your clients’ residential purchases with our comprehensive Groundsure Flood risk report. For any given location, it presents a detailed summary produced from multiple agency databases covering all potential hazards – not just river and tidal. Easy-to-understand, the report also includes a view on flood-risk insurability.


Why do I need this report?

One in six homes in England and Wales is now at risk of flooding. Surface-water events associated with heavy rainfall, high groundwater levels, and tidal and river flooding can all pose significant threats. So the Groundsure Flood report gives you and your clients the information you need to act.

Precise, detailed, supportive

A Groundsure Flood report hones in precisely on any given location, for a dedicated assessment rather than a broad-area assumption. It uses a detailed water and drainage risk model devised by industry experts, and offers access to flood-risk consultants for further advice and support.
