David Woolstencroft and Garth Brown from Brown and Brown Conveyancers catch up and talk about the property risk that emerges due to bushfires.
It is only 2 years since Australia experienced one of the most devastating times with bushfires that brought serious damage - lives lost and properties destroyed. According to the article 'Half a million NSW residents face high to extreme bushfire risk' by Sydney Morning Herald in 2019, there are about 300,000 residents who are potentially affected by the bushfires due to strong wind and hot weather. Garth and David also talk about some practical tools that legal practitioners can use to help their clients be more informed on bushfire risks. They also discuss improving client services and growing law firms by using services such as bushfire reports. The comprehensive Bushfire Risk Search report by Lotsearch summarises the history of the fires, where the fire originated, how much land was destroyed and even vegetation classification, which enables legal practitioners to further assess property risks associated with bushfires.
