Q.

In what ways can a solicitor in Howden report on the risk and history of a flood to properties in Howden?

Following recent news about the serious flooding in York and across Yorkshire, we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches aren't exacting enough?

It could be worth trying to speak to a close neighbour for additional extra assurance.
