It is your responsibility to protect your property from flooding.
Professional advice about home changes
If you make permanent changes to protect your property, it is recommended you seek professional advice. Currently there is no formal assurance scheme for flood surveyors. The following institutions hold lists of members who have undergone internal vetting and adhere to a common code of conduct:
- Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Tel: 024 7686 8555 Email: email@example.com
- Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Tel: 020 7580 5533 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Understanding your flood risk will help you to be prepared and increase your property's flood resilience before flooding occurs.
