Vacant House Insurance

Postby Claire M » Fri Feb 03, 2012 12:03 pm

Hi,

Can anyone please recommend a buildings insurer to cover a vacant house undergoing renovation?

Sorry - not the most interesting question in the world I know.....

Thanks, Claire

Hi,

It took us a while to find an insurance company willing to insure our empty house before we moved in especially as we were going to have some work done on the house before we moved in.

But a friend suggested we try Coversure Insurance Services, http://www.coversure.co.uk and they arranged our insurance through Gresham Services Ltd. It was pretty expensive though but we didn't really have a choice as we couldn't find any other company able to offer insurance if building work was being done to a vacant property.

Hope this helps.

I have a a great insurance broker based in Wandsworth called Insurance Tailors, talk to Monty or Andrew on 020 7199 3253 or email tmontgomery@insurancetailors.com. He has just got a policy together for a client for a shell of a house with historic movement.

Kind regards
