I have posted recently about the issue of actions of the sea, high water, flood and erosions, and with Ex-cyclone Debbie now finishing her path, leaving a trail of destruction in her wake we readdress this issue.

We look at the damage that has occurred and again we face a similar issue to that in Australia, in New Zealand now, where a home has their pool hanging OVER the cliff’s edge due to the land falling away.

When any of us purchase, or rent for that matter, a property, we have to make sure that the asset does not suddenly turn into a massive liability. Some risks are insurable, others, if they occur to frequently such as flood in some places or if they are deemed inevitable such as erosion, they may well not be.
