As the start date for the Government’s new Flood Re scheme approaches the RLA has launched a new flood checker tool for landlords.

As the start date for the Government’s new Flood Re scheme approaches the RLA has launched a new flood checker tool for landlords.

There are 1.7m postcodes in the UK, more than 400,000 of which are considered high risk by some insurers and 111,000 by most.

The new tool, which was developed in conjunction with RLA insurance partner Rentguard, will help landlords see at a glance whether any of their properties – or any properties they plan to buy – are in high risk areas.

To access the new flood checker tool click here.

The RLA has recently submitted an official response to a Government consultation into future flood prevention. We have grave concerns about the new Flood Re scheme, which offers households at high risk of flooding affordable cover, but excludes homes in the Private Rented Sector.

To read about the RLA response to the Government consultation click here.

If your property falls within a high risk postcode contact RLA Insurance on 0845 660 9990 or click here and we will find you the best quote available.
