The Australian Standard Definition of a Flood is: “The covering of normally dry land by water that has escaped or been release from the normal confines of:
Flood insurance is often built into a range of insurance policies, including home and contents, strata title, motor vehicle and business insurance policies.
If you have been affected by flash flooding, most policies cover this flood risk, but check your policy carefully if you have a particular risk for this kind of damage, for example if your house is at the bottom of a slope.
Even if your policy excludes flood damage, your policy may still cover you for events such as storm damage or rainwater damage. Storm or rainwater cover in your insurance policy may cover the situation where your house becomes inundated by rainwater that has fallen naturally from the sky. Though most insurers regard rainwater runoff as part of storm cover, some insurers won’t cover rainwater runoff or storm surge when the customer chooses not to take flood cover.
But the best advice is talk to an expert that can fully assess your situation and provide you with options that suit your needs and budget. Talk to us at Peter Vickers Insurance Brokers on 1300 784 011.
