Further enhancements to GroundSure Flood Report

8th April 2014

GroundSure are pleased to advise that they have added further data to their market-leading flood search to provide even more accuracy and clarity of property-specific risk in affected areas.

With effect from 7th April 2014, the report now additionally includes:

JBA Overall Insurability rating

  • This is a property-specific indicator of the likelihood for insurance to be obtained. Used by many insurance companies to assess flood risk, the data analyses the JBA surface water, fluvial and coastal flooding datasets. It identifies risk within 5 possible categories, highlighting whether insurance and lending security could be an issue for homebuyers.

Environment Agency Historic Flood Events

  • Analysing over 21,000 separate events dating back to 1947, the data identifies where flooding has occurred in the past and provides details of the incidents as available.

Environment Agency Proposed Flood Defences

  • Highlights areas proposed to benefit from New and Reconditioned Flood Defences under the Medium Term Plan (MTP). It includes all of the EA’s projects over £100k that will change or sustain flood defences in England and Wales over the next 5 years. It also quotes the number of households and areas of land that could benefit from major work on flood defences.

Annual Scheduled Flood Maintenance programmes

  • The data details the current planned works to maintain existing defences by The Environment Agency, Local Authority or Internal Drainage Board.

CPRs; the practicalities

In our previous blog, we looked at the definitions outlined by the CPRs. In this blog we’ll look at the practical application of CPRs, the sorts of scenarios that come up day in day out and what lessons we can learn from any enforcement action taken. (more…)

CPRs; the implications

In 2014 The Properties Misdescriptions Act was repealed and replaced with the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations, otherwise known as CPRs.

The main change was a shift in focus away from caveat emptor, or buyer beware, to greater transparency for those involved in the purchasing or renting of property where agents are historically famous for flowery language and an economic use of the truth! (more…)
