Insurance and Legalisation


  • Does your home insurance exclude damage due to flood, or does it impose a huge excess on the policy?
  • Are you having trouble getting cover at all?
  • What is the latest on the government's "Flood Re" scheme?

We can tell you what the experiences are of our members and volunteers but at present the insurance industry's responses can best be described as uneven.

For information and advice we would direct you to The National Flood Forum's website, address on the Links page.We hope to be able to post any changes in the situation as soon as possible after they are announced.
