How Does Building Insurance Work?

Building insurance policies will pay for the cost of repairing the structure of a property in the event of a natural disaster, such as a flood, earthquake, fire, explosion, or severe storm. The insurer may even need to pay to rebuild your home from scratch. Some building insurance policies will also pay the policy holder if their property is damaged through vandalism. The cost of such repairs can be significant and unaffordable without building insurance. That’s what makes this type of policy so essential for homeowners and landlords.

How does content insurance work?

Content insurance will cover the costs of replacing items within a home in the event of natural damage (such as a flood, fire etc.) or if the home was burgled, and valuable possessions were stolen. Some home contents insurance policies will cover items on the person of the people who habitually live in the property even when outside of the property.

What are your options?

Homeowners can choose to take out individual building insurance and contents insurance policies with different insurers, or they can search for a singular building and content insurance policy. There are pros and cons of both options, which can be discussed with our team.

From urban studio flats to manor houses among rolling green hills, we are ready to safeguard your home and possessions with appropriate cover. Start the conversation now!

Building and Content Insurance FAQs

What makes up the rebuild value?

A rebuild value is the amount of money it would take to rebuild your home if it was destroyed beyond repair by a fire or flood. It’s an essential part of your policy because an undervaluation will leave you with a big bill if it was needed. It should include the costs of demolition and clearing, architect costs, planning fees, all materials and labour and room fittings.

How much does buildings insurance cost on average?

Recent data suggests that the average cost of building insurance is around £150 per year, rising to just under £200 per year if you add contents insurance to the policy.

What happens if significant content value changes occur?

If the value of your home contents increases significantly, possibly through acquiring a valuable piece of art or upgrading white goods and electricals, you may need to inform your contents insurer, or your policy may not cover the new possessions.

Do you need to take building and content policies together?

No, you can choose to take out separate policies and some clients choose not to take out contents insurance at all

Frequently asked questions...

Do I have to take out life insurance?

Although it is not a legal requirement to take out mortgage protection insurance, we strongly advise considering it. Life insurance will protect your home for the recommended term, and it would give you the peace of mind that your family could remain in the property in the event of your death or serious illness.

Do lenders charge fees, and will they be refunded if my mortgage is declined?

Lenders sometimes charge fees, and these may be payable on application and some on completion of the property purchase. Some fees may be refundable. Your mortgage broker will explain applicable fees – including if they are refundable - and when they would be due. Your mortgage broker will always provide you with an ESIS (mortgage illustration) for any mortgage they discuss with you, and this will clearly show the breakdown of any fees and their terms.
