Some residents have been concerned about how recent flood claims will affect their ability to continue to have insurance
Information is available from the National Flood Form. The site has a dedicated insurance page. We have spoken to Jean Timmins and she is happy to take calls on 01299 403055 (leave message, will call you back) or by Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Insurance companies do have to offer you a renewal if they are part of Insurance-Re. Recently this has been questioned so we are researching the situation. Flood-Re was introduced in 2016 and at the time enabled people to get insurance at a non-exploitative premium and excess. This was possible because the insurance company was then able to re-insure its risk with a separate Re-Insurance company. Details available here and from the Flood re website ( Flood Re website ).
