Are you at risk?
What can you do?

You may know the area you live in well. Or you may be thinking about moving to a different location.

It’s always good to understand the current flood risks in your area. It’s even better if you can to take action that will reduce the risks of damage to your home.

These links are to sites offering information on flooding, flood damage, and how to be prepared for floods.

All valid claims are reimbursed to the insurer by us at a later date. Those payments go direct to the insurer.
