Floods strike again

Ferocious floods have yet again struck the UK, this time it was Cockermouth in Cumbria that had to face the brunt of the raging weather.

Once the flooding began it quickly escalated leaving home owners stranded in their houses. Some people who had rushed to their homes for safety ended up being rescued from their roofs.

The cleaning up process now begins and this is when home owners find out the value of having flood insurance. As flooding is on the increase it is an area where insurance is essential and Westhill Insurance, who specialises in home insurance, can offer good deals on flood risk properties.

It is essential to state you live in a flood risk area when taking out your home insurance so that your insurer is aware. If you don't state this or take out bespoke flood insurance you will be in a difficult situation should your home get flooded.

People are scared to mention flooding in case it hikes their premiums but what starts out as a cost saving could soon turn into a money pit if you are unlucky enough to become a victim of flooding. Imagine replacing all flooring, furnishings and appliances, on to mention getting the water damage dried out and repaired. It would be an impressive bill to pay should you not be covered.

Flood insurance will take care of these issues and as soon as it goes wrong you can get advice from your insurer regarding what to do next to salvage your home.
