Alternative accomodation organised for those in need

Claims experts and loss adjusters from Aviva have begun visiting homes and businesses affected by yesterday’s floods, according to the insurer.

Emergency payments have already been made to those affected by the flooding, and alternative accommodation is being organised where needed.

Dominic Clayden, director of claims at Aviva, visited Cornwall to see the results of the flooding.

Clayden said: “Sadly flooding is all too common and we know from experience the devastating effects it can have on your home and business, so we are only to pleased to be able to help customers get their lives back to normal as quickly as possible.

“Obviously for those homes that have been deluged with water the drying-out process can be quite lengthy, so we will be organising, suitable, appropriate alternative accommodation for those who have to move out of their homes while they are being repaired.”
