Obtaining flood insurance in high risk areas

This guide aims to provide, in one place, information that will help you to obtain a suitable policy.



If your property has suffered from flood damage in the past, if there is a history of flooding in your neighbourhood or you are within an identified flood risk area, it can sometimes be difficult to find insurance cover.

This guide explains how to get specialist help and what information you may be asked to give, provides tips on how to reduce the impact of flooding and the last section of the guide provides useful information on key organisations - their responsibilities and contact details and relevant websites for further reading.
