Homecheck Professional has launched a comprehensive flood report for residential property. The insurance bill from families and businesses hit by recent floods exceeds £2 billion, and according to Homecheck Professional and the Environment Agency, up to 5 million people, in 2 million properties across England and Wales could be at risk from flooding. What is more, despite the government’s efforts, property, land and assets to the value of £214 billion will remain at risk of flooding in the future says Landmark. The new Homecheck Professional Flood Report is unique, featuring not only data from the Environment Agency, and Norwich Union (the UK’s biggest flood insurer), but also featuring records of actual flood claims in the local area. The flood report costs £12 and is available through solicitors or conveyancers, or direct from Landmark on 0844 844 9966, alternatively e-mail or visit
