Deep water

"Westhill Insurance – we've got it covered!"

The changeable British weather is always a source of conversation but over the past few years it has taken on a life of its own with extreme conditions which have caused flash floods and general chaos.

Thanks to the weather there are even more British homes now prone to flooding. Once you know you are in this position the best thing to do is declare it to your insurer, however, not many people are doing that. It is best to keep your insurer informed so you can be accurately covered otherwise your policy could be void.

Flooding causes thousands of pounds worth of damage so having the correct level of cover is important. Trying to save money on your policy could be a false economy in the long run.
