Home Insurance

House and Contents Insurance

Home insurance will never replace your home, and money will never replace many of your treasured possessions. However, we will ensure that the cover you receive will certainly help restore a roof over your head and replace the things money can buy enabling you to move on to the more important task of making it a home again.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I insure my building’s structure for the market value or rebuilding cost?

    When seeking home insurance you should always use the cost of rebuilding your home as opposed to the market value.

    The market value of a property includes the land and therefore you would be paying a higher premium than you need to.

    Some policies offer home insurance cover based on an overall limit on rebuilding a property. For example they may set a fixed limit of £400,000 and as long as the amount they set is confidently enough to rebuild your home, clear the site and pay professional fees there is no need to work out an exact cost.

  • How can I work out the rebuilding cost of my home?

    You could either employ the services of a qualified surveyor or you can go to the ABI website where they have a handy calculator (http://abi.bcis.co.uk)

    The calculator may not be suitable if your home is not of a standard build and/or has specialist features.

  • Do I need to tell my insurer if I have major building work done, such as an extension?

    Always notify your insurer before having work carried out on your property. It is also important to let your insurer know if the work carried out that could increase risk of damage to your property.

    This is especially true if you are having an extension built, if it is being significantly refurbished or will be empty for a prolonged period.

  • Will insurance cover damage that is caused when things wear out?

    Your home insurance will not cover your home and belongings for standard wear and tear. Keeping on top of maintenance etc. is not something insurance is designed to replace.
  • If I need to make a claim who should I contact?

    In all instances your first call when needing to make a claim should be your insurer.
