Flood Home Insurance

insurance for flood risk property

Insuring property located on a flood plain

Many homes and buildings sit in the most high-risk, flood-prone areas, which could lead to major disasters in the event of historic floods. You are faced with some of the negative aspects that living with the risk of flooding can bring. In some cases, house prices can be detrimentally affected in these high flood risk areas, even more so if the house cannot be sold due to flood plain insurance difficulties.

Since mortgage providers require you to have property or buildings insurance before offering you a mortgage, the inability to get flood plain insurance could literally make these properties impractical for any buyer.

Some homes situated in a flood plain area represent a major or even unacceptable risk for the insurance companies to take on and so finding flood plain property insurance to cover them can be an uphill struggle.
