Flood insurance problems won't go away

We are nearly into October 2010 and before we know winter will be upon us and the possibility of floods once again.

Many people who live in areas close to rivers are being affected by some insurance companies policies regarding living in area that could have flooding.

Neil Cook an Insurance Broker working with Equity and General Insurance Services Ltd emailed earlier this week to say "I am getting a good few calls from clients in Oxford as they are near the river they are being dropped by their house insurers as they are in a new floodzone & uninsuranble" A very worrying situation.

On this blog on the 7th September we featured this story "Flood Damage Insurance" that is featured in "Yourletters: The voice of Furness and South Cumbria ".

There is "Summary of findings – National Flood Forum 2010 survey of flooded individuals - Produced by Dr Tim Harries" which is well worth taking a look at by following this link http://floodforum.org.uk/files/Summary%20of%20findings.pdf and on the 17th September there was a Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) Flood summit and the Press Release can be found HERE
