Just Landlords Issue Advice Regarding Flooding

June 20, 2012

NOTTINGHAM, England, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Just Landlords, a leading insurance specialist for landlords and tenants alike, have
issued a warning and some advice regarding property flooding. The weather has recently
become rather sporadic with sudden downpours followed by bright sunshine. There have even
been some days where all four seasons have been rolled into one unpredictable day’s
weather. Just Landlords have noticed that many parts of the UK have, as a result, suffered
from flooding.

The Managing Director of Just Landlords, Richard Berridge, has been explaining that
even minor flooding can be extremely damaging for a property: “Flood damage can be very
costly and can lead to further damage later down the line. For example, if your kitchen
floor is flooded it will undoubtedly soak through a number of units which can lead to
decay and mould. So from a small, relatively minor amount of flooding, disastrous and
costly knock-on effects can be caused.”

Mr Berridge went on to add: “Any flood preventing measures you can take will be
beneficial, particularly in those areas that are most likely to be affected by extreme
rain and flooding.”

In the unfortunate event of flooding, Just Landlords have suggested that it will be a
good idea to take care when clearing up afterwards. They have stated that waterproof
clothing should be worn along with gloves and wellington boots. Even a face mask is
advisable. Furthermore, they have suggested that it will be a good idea to have the
electricity supply switched off at the mains by a professional and that a pump and
generator can be used to remove water from the property. For landlords it will be
essential to ensure that a property is safe again before allowing it to be inhabited
whilst tenants should immediately advise their landlord.
