BIBA Approved Commercial Flood Insurance

Via R&Q Commercial Risk Services Ltd

The purpose of the scheme is to provide comprehensive cover at highly competitive terms from secure ‘A’-rated Lloyd’s capacity. The proposition also includes an ‘Excess-Buy-Back’ facility, where, because of the nature of the risk a higher flood excess applies, for an additional premium you can cover your policy excess.

Flood Insurance for business and property owners

The facility caters for business and property owners (it is not available for private households) who have difficulty in purchasing cover for damage caused by flood. This could be clients who have either suffered previous flood damage, are located in areas of high potential flood risk or who have had flood terms imposed.

The scheme's 3 contracts:

  1. Commercial Combined for manufacturing and
    distribution trades
  2. Package policies for retail, offices & surgery
  3. Property Owners cover for real estate investors

Each has wordings that include loss damage and liabilities that you would expect from a comprehensive commercial policy. Where the property or the liability risk is outside of underwriting footprint, flood cover may be provided in isolation on selected cases.

The scheme's key benefits:

  • Simple easy to access quotation process
  • Clear and concise policy documentation
  • Risk assessment using state of the art mapping
    technology from Landmark
  • Recognition of flood resilience and resistance measures
    in pricing and terms
  • Availability of an optional additional policy covering high
    flood excesses
  • The potential to consider resilient repairs as part of
    claims solution
  • 24 hours / 365 day property claims notification line
