Some years ago, it was felt that it was unsafe for such important documents to be stored locally, so they were forwarded to the Suffolk Archives in Ipswich. If you require any information, you can contact Suffolk Archives, Ipswich Branch at The Hold, 131 Fore Street, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP4 1LR
Telephone: 01473 296666 or email: archives@suffolk.gov.uk

Flood Re is a new way to help people who live in flood risk areas get affordable home insurance. It launched on April 4th 2016.  https://www.abi.org.uk/products-and-issues/topics-and-issues/flood-re/

How do I know if Flood Re is relevant to me?

Only people who live in flood risk areas will benefit from Flood Re, and even then it will depend on how much you pay for the flooding part of your home insurance.

A lot of people who live in a flood risk area will already be aware of it. If you’re not sure, your current insurer or insurance broker will be able to tell you if your property is considered at risk of flooding. There are also free online maps showing flood risk for different areas of EnglandWalesNothern Ireland or Scotland. Remember to check for your risk of surface water flooding as well as your risk from rivers and the sea.

The Flood Re scheme is designed to help people who buy the buildings or contents insurance for properties which are at risk of flooding, providing they own and live in them. There is also a rule meaning you won’t be eligible if your property was built after January 1st 2009.

How do I benefit from Flood Re?

If you live in a property where there is a high risk of flooding you may be contacted by your insurer directly about the scheme. You can also call your insurer to find out if they can offer you new options.

A list of the insurers using Flood Re is regularly updated on the Flood Re website and there is an online broker finding service provided by the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).
