Can I Still Sell My House If It’s In A Flood Risk Area?

Many buyers are concerned about buying a property that is in a high-risk flood area, but this doesn't mean you can't sell your home.

Selling a property in a known flood-risk area can be difficult. Many are concerned about investing in a property where they may struggle to get a mortgage or sufficient home insurance because it's deemed to be too high-risk. It's also a possibility that insurance may carry a high premium to compensate for the property's location.

What Can You Do to Prepare Against Flooding?

Preparing for a flood is key. If you know you live in a high-risk area then there are a few things you can do to protect yourself, your possessions and your property:

  • Sign up for free flood warnings via phone, email or text 
  • Make sure you’re aware of what to do if a flood occurs – turn off amenities, move family and pets to safety, pack a bag with clothes, medicine, and important documentation
  • Have the correct insurance in place
  • Get specialists to make changes to your property that will withstand any future flooding – tiles instead of carpets, plug sockets higher up the wall, flood barriers and non-return valves


How Much Can This Cost?

Making changes to your property can be costly. If you’ve experienced a flood or are concerned about the cost implications of any future flooding then we can buy your property. Our team of specialists will repair any damage or put preventative measures in place before selling the property on. 


How Can We Help?

If your home is in an area that has a high risk of flooding then it can be tricky to sell, however we can still potentially buy your property quickly, it just depends on the circumstances. As you may expect we won’t be able to offer you the full price of your property, but we will offer you a fair price, which is something we do for all of our customers. We also cover all legal fees.

Abbie wills was absolutely amazing! Throughout a journey of ups and downs she has been the one to be chasing both sides of solicitors making sure we had a quick sale. Customer service Abbie has provided has been absolutely outstanding. Would recommend highly.

Happy customer

Would highly recommend The Property Buying company if your looking for a quick sale hassle free. My property is complex because it only holds a short lease & because of this it wouldn't sell for the market value & only to a cash buyer. The property Buying Company have helped to change my world by purchasing it from me at obviously a much lower price than it would be if the lease had been longer but now I am able to purchase another property and move on. Elie has gone the extra mile in my opionion... he has worked so very hard to help me not only with the sale of my property but even with negotiating with the seller's of the property I am now hoping to buy! That's what I call great customer service!! Big thank you to Daniel and Charlotte too for their professional friendly customer service.

Never heard of this company before but l have to say that the professionalism was superb from start to finish. Initially Jessica was my first port of call and again she was very helpful indeed. Our main contact after Jessica was Abbie Wills who was both extremely helpful,understanding and gave fantastic customer service deserves a pay rise.What a lovely lady.
