My dh and I have seen a house I really like, but in theory at least, the land is down on the land register as being in an area susceptible to flooding. The house dates back to pre 1900, and to the knowledge of everyone in the area, there has never been flooding in the little village, only on some arable land lower in the valley. Dh has got kind of cold feet about the whole thing. I just wondered if anyone here had taken the risk, and whether they felt it was a risky investment, or OK for the future. The insurance company that currently insures the house is prepared to go on doing so (despite the new flood-zone laws that were created in 1995 (last sale of the house 1992, so not concerned by the flood legislation at that time). Can anyone help me out here? Tell me I must be crazy ... or maybe not. - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - "Everyone knows they're going to die someday, but no-one believes it.
