It depends whether you want a contents insurance policy, a buildings insurance policy, or a bit of both. Call our team on 0344 892 1750 to get started or get a quote online.

With a demised property you’re responsible for things like your floorboards and plaster walls to ceiling, as well as fixtures and fittings, and of course your contents. Some insurance companies won’t cover demised premises, but at Towergate we do. Just talk to our team and we’ll see what you need, and what we can do.
We specialise in providing cover where other insurers can’t. If you’ve had previous insurance claims we will still consider your case, whether or not you’ve been rejected by other insurers.
You’ll need a specialist landlords insurance policy, as this will cover you not just for your contents or buildings but things like public liability and loss of rent, too. You can call our specialist team on 0344 891 1750.

Yes. If there’s an insurable incident at your flat – like a leak, or a fire, anything that you’re going to claim for - and the damage means you can’t live there while it’s fixed, we’ll put you up in a B&B or hotel.
There are limits to this cover, though. You’ll get accommodation paid for up to 20% of your rebuild cost – if you have buildings insurance, or 20% of your contents value – if you just have contents insurance, or whichever is greater if you have both.
You’ll be asked to supply these figures when you get your flat buildings and/or contents insurance, estimating what it would cost to rebuild the property from scratch, or what it would cost to replace the contents from scratch.
