Unoccupied property insurance in probate - A few questions and answers:

The existing home insurance provider has confirmed they are happy to continue cover on standard terms. Therefore do we still need an unoccupied property insurance policy?

Under a home insurance policy standard terms and conditions, if the property becomes unoccupied, automatic exclusions will be applied including Theft, Malicious Damage, Burst Pipes, Escape of Water. You will need an unoccupied property insurance policy to restore these perils.

 

I am not a surveyor - How do I know that the sums insured are adequate for the unoccupied property?

Our bedroom rated product provides an amount insured up to £500,000 as standard, taking away the worry of calculating rebuilding costs in most cases.

 

Unoccupied property insurance when the buildings sum insured exceeds £500,000?

We have other products to offer where the bedroom rated policy is not suitable, and facilities to place cover for up to £10m where required.

 

The property has been unoccupied for several years and the existing insurer has declined to offer renewal

We are able to place cover for residential property even if it has been unoccupied for an extended period - as long as it is properly maintained and we are happy with the reason for the period of unoccupancy.
