    Thanks John. I got onto geo maps in the first place. that's where I learnt that the floodplain existed.

    Geomaps was where I first found the floodplain. Looks like all the water travels down the street through this one section. Just wondering if that would put future buyers off. Haven't got enough privileges to post the image,unfortunately

    We live in a flood plain, knew when we bought the property and it will always forever be on the title. We have just built a large garage and had to get resource consent and sign to say that we acknowledge we are building on flood plain. Insurance company also has to be notified. You can't get away from it and your case the drain was put there for a reason.

    Thanks Meehole. I've decided to pass this time. The potential for resale worries me. The house is extremely tidy and proced well, but still on market after two months and a lot of people through it. It just seems too good to be true.

    I've found another option with less hassle, John. I'll keep that option if I ever find a similar property, though. Thank you.
