The climate is changing and during the winter of 2013–14 flood events occurred in the UK which resulted in flooding to the Thames Valley, coastal flooding in the South West and flooding in the Somerset Levels. Thousands of homes and many hundreds of businesses were affected.

The UK has a long industrial history and many areas of land may have been contaminated by old industrial uses, with substances such as arsenic and lead being left behind in the soil. Over the years, these old industrial sites have been and continue to be redeveloped into housing and offices and unless identified and remediated, any toxic substances may cause harm today.

Significant areas of the UK are at risk from subsidence. The obvious culprit is coal mining, but there are also tin mines, and many other minerals such as gypsum, salt, and anhydrite that have been mined or are being mined across the country.

Wind Farms near to a property could materially affect its capital value. Aside from the visual impact, other concerns exist such as wind turbulence, low frequency pulsing sounds from the blades, high pitched sounds from the hub, and continual flickering shadows in strong sunlight.
