Property Protection Advisor

Welcome to the Scottish Flood Forum’s Property Protection Advisor.

This is a simple 'ready reckoner' tool that helps raise awareness of the options available and provides an initial cost estimate of typical flood resistance measures for different types of properties. You can also produce a more specific report tailored to your own particular property.

To find out how much it might cost to provide property level protection for your home, please click 'Get Costs for an Individual Property’.

The Property Protection Advisor is only a guide – you are strongly advised to seek expert advice from an independent flood risk assessor who will survey your property and identify options that are suitable for you, the property and the flood risk. Examples of the types of products are shown in our Flood Protection Guide, or the Blue Pages may be helpful for you. Please note that this is not a full list of products; nor does it imply that they are suitable for your situation.

What’s the Next Step?

It is worth checking with your local authority if they have a subsidised Property Level Protection (PLP) scheme in operation.

Alternatively, contact the SFF for additional advice on what measures may suit you and your property.
