Negotiations between the UK government and the insurance industry haven't yet resulted in a new agreement on flooding...  The insurers want government to guarantee a level of spending on flood defences if they are going to offer insurance to at risk homes (though they can probably afford to pay out anyway). With around 200,00 properties at risk in the UK and the need to build around 3 million new homes, an agreement is surely needed. What is it costing to insure your home? Has the cost gone up because of flooding? Or maybe you can't afford insurance and have to stand the risk yourself?
