Do you live in a flood risk area or have been unlucky enough to have had a flood in your property previously?
Information needed to get the adequate flood insurance
To get the best terms from insurers, it always best to be prepared to answer all their questions. The more information you have, the better.
- Proximity of water - how near the water is to your property in yards or feet.
- History of flooding - detailed information of any flooding in and around the area.
- What precautions have been taken since the property are flooded - be aware of any government schemes in your area.
- Flood claims history - if claims have been made you need cost of repairs and work carried out.
We can also advise you of the deterrents to flood ingress i.e. flood gate doorway or taking valuable items upstairs if there is an adverse weather warning. Invest in sandbags to prevent water entering. Also consider a toilet sealer to prevent effluent coming back into your property.
