Flood Vulnerability Assessments

A flood vulnerability assessment is our version of a Homebuyer Flood Report or Commercial Flood Report. A flood vulnerability assessment reviews risk to property and can be used for insurance, property flood resilience or to support a property purchase or sale

These come in two types - residential and commercial (including industrial).

Flood Vulnerability Assessments

Often called a Homebuyer Flood Report, a Flood Vulnerability Assessment is a more detailed assessment of property flood risk, focused on the property sector – helping to facilitate property sale and purchase, or commercial operational risks.  Aegaea condense years of experience and expert consultant knowledge to produce a report that is targeted at residential and commercial property to help you establish exactly what your risk is.  We go one further than that and review potential changes to your situation with regards to climate change, the impact of property flood protection and operational procedures (for commercial/industrial premises).

Flood vulnerability Assessements have been used by our clients for:

  • due dilligence on property purchase
  • adding to homebuyer packs to support a sale
  • understanding potential flood resilience measures
  • reviewing potential policy risks prior to purchase
  • to support insurance supplier requests
  • to support operational reviews on commercial and industrial premises

Residential Flood Vulnerability Assessments

What does a Flood Vulnerability Assessment Cover?

A residential flood vulnerability assessment is property specific and covers all sources of flood risk:

  • Fluvial
  • Tidal
  • Surface Water
  • Ground Water
  • Reservoir Inundation
  • Canal

Most homebuyer flood risk reports will flag if there is any evidence of flooding near a property, but typically these will not be highly informative – if you want any further information you’ll need to pay for a “further action report”. An Aegaea Residential Flood Vulnerability Assessment includes a review of the risk, and potential causes and issues as well as reviewing local and national policy to undertand the risk context.

What does a flood vulnerability assessment provide above and beyond a homebuyer flood report?

  • discussion of potential property flood resilience measure to reduce risk
  • look at future flood risk as it relates to climate change
  • policy context review based on national and local data
  • review of section 19 flood investigations where available
  • integration of detailed modelling outputs (where available)

These are not widely available in any other Homebuyer Flood Reports and provide the context that they often lack.

Commercial Flood Vulnerability Assessments

What does a Flood Vulnerability Assessment Cover?

A commercial flood vulnerability assessment is property specific and covers all sources of flood risk:

  • Fluvial
  • Tidal
  • Surface Water
  • Ground Water
  • Reservoir Inundation
  • Canal

What does a commercial flood vulnerability assessment provide above and beyond a homebuyer flood report?

  • discuss property flood resilience with specific reference to operational continuity/business continuity
  • look at future flood risk and potential implications to the going concern
  • policy context review looking at potential changes to the business requirements
  • discussion over flood insurance
  • review of section 19 flood investigations where available
  • integration of detailed modelling outputs (where available)
  • consideration of flood evacuation and planning
