All we are hearing about at the moment is floods. Not only is this affecting residentialproperties but also lots of businesses properties. Flooding can cause serious damage to your business I would always advise that if you are buying a commercial property that you consider obtaining a search that provides you with flood information.
An environmental search will tell you a lot about the property but it will also tell you if the property is located in an area that has suffered from flooding in the past. If the property has a history of flooding this could stop you from obtaining insurance for the property and it could also damage your business, clients/customers not able to attend, staff not being able to get to the property, stock and the building itself being damaged.
I therefore cannot stress enough that if you have concerns about flooding please ensure that before you buy a property that you obtain the appropriate search
