Flood damage to property is extremely stressful and they are amongst the most complex insurance claims, so you need the best advice
Whether or not you believe in climate change, severe weather events are certainly on the increase and this is particularly noticeable when it comes to flooding, following a storms, and torrential rainfall.
Unless you have actually been flooded out of your home, it is frankly impossible to appreciate the trauma and devastating consequences this type of damage can have on you personally and the long term impact on the property. Not only are there potentially lasting effects on the property if not properly dealt with, but also it may be blighted and you may find Insurers will not re insure you.
So, you need to be guided through the entire claim process carefully, and by someone who understands what it takes to get a complex claim settled. Typically, a flood will render the property uninhabitable and so alternative accommodation will be required ( insert hyperlink to accommodation video). It may take at least 6 months for the drying and restortation to be completed and so you will need to prepare yourself mentally for this.
Additionally there is likely to be damage to your personal effects and contents as well and these will need to be listed, restored ( if possible) and valued. All time consuming and stressful. So of course you will want someone on your side.
