Here’s some information from the environment agency on how to get details.

Get the flooding history for a property

You can get the flooding history of a property based on Environment Agency records.

Send an email to enquiries@environment-agency.gov.uk including:

  • the property’s address or a map of the area if the postcode is not known (you can attach a file or link to an online map)
  • the period you’d like the report to cover
  • your daytime telephone number

You’ll be sent the report by email within 20 working days.

The report is free unless it takes more than 18 hours to put together. If it takes longer, the Environment Agency will contact you. They may decide not to do the report. If they do it, they charge £25 per hour, including for the first 18 hours.
