What is Buildings Cover?

1st August 2017

Home

Buildings insurance protects the structure of your home including anything permanently attached to your property such as fitted fixtures, outbuildings and fences. Imagine if you were to tip your home upside down. Your furniture, appliances and personal belongings would fall out. Buildings insurance typically covers what's left.

A good quality buildings insurance policy will cover your home against a wide range of situations. You’ll be covered for the obvious things such as repairs to your roof following storm damage, and the essential things such as alternative accommodation if you can’t live in your home until repairs are completed.

Why Is Buildings Insurance So Important?

You never know what might happen tomorrow. A burst pipe while you are on holiday could destroy the ground floor of your home, and high winds overnight could cause considerable damage to your roof. Buildings insurance gives you peace of mind that your home will be covered against the unexpected and all necessary repairs carried out under your policy. Furthermore, many mortgage lenders will demand that buildings insurance is in place before they will lend against a property.
