As a property owner, it’s likely your insurance policies will have varying levels of excess.
For example, you may have to pay a standard policy excess of £250, but higher excesses may apply for escape of water, subsidence and/or malicious damage by a tenant. You may even face an increased excess if you suffer a large loss.
Excess protection insurance makes it easier to manage those costs, allowing you to make a further claim for the value of excess paid. It works alongside your normal property owners insurance policy and will cover the cost of your excess up to a pre-agreed limit.
Cover is only available where we also insure the buildings. Excess protection cover must be purchased on all properties insured under the same property portfolio. This product is not available as a standalone option.
