Our policy provides cover on a replacement as new basis. This means that in the unlikely event of a total loss we will replace the home with its brand new equivalent and include the associated costs of site clearance, re-sitting and delivery. It can be very difficult to ascertain exactly what it would cost to replace your home which can lead to uncertainty and possibly under insurance. For this reason our 'Insurance for your Park Home' policy automatically includes reassuringly high sums insured of up to £250,000 for single unit homes and £500,000 for double units. These generous sums insured should ensure that your home remains fully insured at all times.
Yes our policy has the option for you to insure your contents and personal possessions, both in the home and away from it. Cover is on a new for old basis, including clothing and household linen, therefore the sum insured should reflect the cost to replace everything as new without deduction for age, wear and tear. It can be difficult to work out what the sum insured should be so our 'Insurance for your Park Home' policy automatically includes a generous sum insured of up to £50,000 for single units and £75,000 for double units. We hope that these amounts will be more than adequate.
Should you want to insure certain items away from home, usually items which are worn or carried on or about the person such as jewellery, clothing, cameras and sports equipment then the policy can be extended. Such items will then be insured against loss or damage anywhere in the world.
Unfortunately park homes, like any other home, can be rendered uninhabitable following, for example, a fire or flood. In such circumstances it may be many months before repairs can be completed or the home replaced. In these instances the policy covers the costs of reasonable temporary alternative accommodation up to a limit of £30,000. Also included within this limit is the loss of rent which remains payable by you to the site owner and emergency kennelling of your domestic pets.
The base is owned by the site owner to whom you pay a ground rent for the right to occupy the pitch. It is therefore the responsibility of the site owner to insure the base against, for example, subsidence. You are, however, responsible for insuring what you own which would include outbuildings such as sheds, garages, steps and decking.
Yes, your policy includes 24 hour Homecare Emergency Assistance cover which is provided by Europ Assistance. In the event of certain emergency situations an approved contractor will come to your home, assess the situation and carry out emergency repairs up to a maximum of £500.
Emergencies would include, for example, burst pipes likely to cause damage to your home or contents; a break in or vandalism which compromises the security of your home; the failure of mains services for which you are responsible; the removal of wasps nests; and the total failure of the central heating system in adverse weather conditions which is likely to result in unreasonable discomfort or frost damage to the home.
Yes, your policy includes a £5m indemnity protection in respect of injury to the public or damage to property arising from your ownership of the home. This could include, for example, injury to the postman if he trips and falls on your badly maintained steps, or damage to a parked car from tiles falling from your poorly maintained roof.
The policy includes cover for legal expenses and advice. It is underwritten by Abbey Legal, however park home specific disputes are handled by park home legal expert Graham Watts. This extends to both advice and to representing you at a Residential Property Tribunal or in Court.
Disputes covered include those involving your rights to occupy and use your home; site maintenance; annual pitch fees provided you have owned the home for 12 months; the exercising of your right to sell - provided this commences at least 6 months after the purchase of the insurance. The limit for any one claim is £25,000 and the decision whether or not to accept a claim will be made by the underwriter.
Yes, if your garden is damaged by certain perils such as explosion, theft, vandalism or road vehicles, the policy will pay up to £750 for re-landscaping but not more than £250 for any one tree, shrub or plant.
