This can be done by checking with local councils to see if the property is situated in a flood-prone zone or if it has ever been affected by flooding in the past. It is also advisable to check with other residents in the area as to the likelihood and severity of this happening.

It is equally important to consider the type of flooding that may occur in the area. Some regions are more prone to river or coastal flooding, while others may be at risk of flash floods caused by heavy rainfall. Understanding the type of flooding that may affect a property can help in making informed decisions about its suitability.
