Protecting homes with Flood RE in higher flood risk areas

Magenta Flood

Flood damage to property causes catastrophic damage and often means client’s can no longer obtain cover unless they are able to obtain it from Flood RE. We are here to look at all Flood risks and can offer help even when Flood RE does not apply. Many properties are excluded from qualifying for the scheme and so we are here to help.

Flood RE

Help for those who can't get cover

To help those who can’t access flood cover on their property, Flood RE is a scheme backed by the Government and deals with flood insurance differently. Insurers pay a levy to help fund Flood RE. In the event of a flood claim, the insurer will pay the claim, and Flood RE will reimburse the insurer.

The scheme will be in place for 25 years, to allow for the Government, local authorities, insurers and communities to become better prepared for flooding with resilient measures.
