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 hard. 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.

Really good experience
very professional service, unfortunately we need a higher offer, so we will be refusing the offer made.
Mine was a tentative enquiry. The lady was polite, informative and not “pushy”
They take all the stress and worry away and always willing to help.
I didn’t end up using the service as I got a buyer but they were very professional and helpful! Couldn’t praise Daniel enough
