Flood Risk Insurance FAQs

Question

What excess do I have to pay on this policy?

Answer

You can choose to add a voluntary excess from £50 to £450. If you go for the higher amount, this will reduce your premium. Certain types of constructions, including properties at risk of flooding, have a higher excess - such as flat-roofed properties. For more information speak to one of our sales advisors on 0344 736 0088.

Question

Can Towergate arrange immediate cover?

Answer

This depends on your circumstances and the type of property you want to insure. The quickest way to find out is to speak to one of our advisors on 0344 892 1750.

Question

What do I do if I need to cancel my cover?

Answer

Please call us or notify us in writing with the reason for cancellation and state the date from which you need cover to cease. Remember, if your policy is in more than one name, all policyholders will need to sign the letter.

Question

Do I have to keep my flood risk property maintained?

Answer

You must take all reasonable steps to prevent accidents, loss or damage and must maintain the property insured in sound condition and good repair. If you have a flat roof, a professional builder or roofer will need to visit your property every eight years to inspect it and any necessary repairs should be carried out.
