Converting properties for domestic use or splitting a property into smaller apartments? Either way, read more to find out the benefits of our insurance for conversions
We can consider insurance for many types of converted properties. The property could be recently converted, the original building could be hundreds of years old, it could be listed, of a high value or even of non-standard construction and we can still help get you covered. In fact, as-long as the building regulations are signed off on the conversion, we will be able to consider your property.
Two of the most important questions we will ask are, “how old is the original building?” And, “when was it converted?”. The life of the original building starts from when the foundations were laid so we will need to know this and also the date at which the most recent conversion was finished. Other things you’ll need to tell us are; when the last electrical inspection was, what type of heating system is installed, whether the property has exposed beams (and if they are fire guarded), whether the chimney is lined, if there are fire extinguishers present and if the property has asbestos.
Have you converted the property into separate apartments? We can also provide cover for this. We can insure the entire property for you, on one policy. As well as the buildings insurance, we can also provide landlords insurance too should you wish to rent them out. We can also cover your property while the refurbishment work is going on.
We don’t raise the price just because the property is converted and we don’t unfairly lower the level of cover either. So you can still get the buildings insurance and contents insurance you need to secure your property. Our home policies also include temporary accommodation for you and your pets should your home become uninhabitable as well as many other great home insurance features.
These are just some of the key features and exclusions, full details will be found in your policy wording. Show policy documents
If and when it comes to the crunch and you need to make a claim, we have an in-house team who work hard to understand all the details of your claim then get these to the insurer to get your claim resolved as quickly as possible.
