You can stay on the same policy after you have completed the sale so that you don’t have to shop around for another policy.
Whether the property will be unoccupied, you’re having work done, planning to rent, or running a business from your new home we have flexible cover to suit you.
Our friendly and helpful claims team are available 5 days a week, 8:30am - 5:30pm. Just give them a call with your policy number, contact information and claims details and they will get the process started.
If you’re buying a house or rental property, you’re responsible for your new bricks and mortar from the moment you exchange contracts. If something happens before you move in, you’re still obliged to buy it. We will cover you in this scenario.
Because our policy extends to when you move in, your contents will be covered as soon as the removal men bring your contents through the door.
We can also provide buildings cover for a rental property you may be staying in between exchange and completion of the sale.
We can also cover you if you are purchasing a new build home that doesn’t have a recognised postcode yet. Our system allows us to be flexible in this respect where as other insurance companies may be limited to registered postcodes.
When you need to make a claim, we'll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.
Home buyers insurance is insurance for anyone buying a property. Once you’ve exchanged contracts with the seller, you’re contracted to buy the property. For example, even if a major leak makes it uninhabitable, you’re still legally obliged to go through with the purchase.
Some insurance companies don’t like to insure a property when someone other than you is living in it – which is technically what happens after you’ve exchanged contracts with the seller of your new property. It is worth checking as you may need a specialist policy.
No – we can add your contents in once you move, so you can carry on under the same policy. We’re flexible, so for instance, if the property is going to be unoccupied for a while, if you’re going to rent it out, if you’re going to have refurbishment work done, our policy will adapt to your needs. Just keep us informed of your circumstances and we can update your policy accordingly.
If something happens to your property after you’ve exchanged with buyers, and they don’t have their own insurance in place, our policy means they're covered too.
Policies will vary depending on things like location, the rebuild cost of your property, and the value of your contents - go online for a quote or give us a call to chat through the details.
