What is property insurance?

Property insurance can cover properties that aren’t used as a primary residence. It can offer cover to safeguard a home or premises from financial risks in the event of a disaster, which can include buildings and contents cover, unoccupancy cover, protection for landlords, and more.

Therefore, having suitable property insurance can be integral to helping protect your investment.

What does property insurance include?

Property cover is centred on protecting your buildings and contents.

  • Buildings insurance can include the dwelling, garages, and outbuildings.
  • Contents insurance can include household goods, valuables, and personal belongings within the property.

Cover can offer protection against:

  • Natural disasters

    Cover for damages caused by natural disasters such as lightning, earthquakes, and landslips.

  • Accidental damage

    Protect against accidental damage caused by persons legally in the building.

  • Theft

    Cover for theft of belongings such as money and technology.

  • Replacement locks

    Cover for the cost of replacement keys and locks if keys are lost or stolen.

  • Escape of water

    Cover for damage caused by escape of water from fixed or domestic installations following damage to the building.

Depending on the type of property you’re insuring, you can add additional cover to your policy. For instance, our block of flats policy includes financial support for residents that need alternative accommodation.

Policy limits and exclusions may apply. Please see the policy documentation for full details.

Property Insurance FAQ

Please note that these frequently asked questions are not a substitute for the policy wording. For full terms and conditions please see the policy documentation.

If you rent a holiday home, public liability insurance could be helpful. It can help to financially protect you from compensation claims.

Depending on the property you own, insurance may be a requirement. For instance, building insurance can be a requirement to take out a mortgage.

However, even if property insurance isn’t legally required for your home, it’s very much worth considering. For instance, the costs arising from a reckless guest or natural disaster could impact your finances if protection isn’t in place.
