If you experience problems insuring your home because of the flood risk, you can now use a scheme designed to ensure affordable flood insurance is available to those homes at the highest risk of flooding (excluding issues arising from coastal erosion). This scheme is a joint Government and insurance industry initiative.
For more information about the scheme visit the Flood Re website, where you can watch a short video. You may also find the leaflet useful.
