Taking immediate steps such as moving any loose furniture inside and securing down anything that cannot be moved as much as you can, will help to reduce damage to your property

Check guttering for blockages or damage
Remove any debris that may cause blockage such as moss or leaves also check that there is no damage to guttering so that water can flow away easily

Check maintenance of external walls
Examine the outer walls to check for cracks as this could allow water ingress

Check the roofing
Review the condition of your roof tiles to ensure they have not moved or been displaced or damaged

Check external windows or doors
Examine the seals between the windows, door frames and walls to ensure the seals are not cracked or perished

Clear your drains
