High-value home insurance can include:
When stating the sum insured for your buildings it should be for the estimated rebuild cost of the property rather than the market value. Providing a correct sum insured will mean you do not pay inflated premiums.
If there are any change in circumstances for your property e.g. undertaking renovation, or letting out rooms, you should let your insurance provider know as claims may be invalidated if they are unaware. If in doubt it is always better to speak to us.
The definition of high-value is subjective. We regard it as anything you feel is high-value and want protected correctly.
No, you will be able to change your existing policy unless there are any adverse risk issues with your new property (e.g. flood area).
If it’s unoccupied for less than 30 days there is not an issue; even 60 days un-occupancy is often acceptable. Beyond 60 days, there may be restrictions in cover.
Anything you take with you when you leave the house on a day to day basis or if you are away for an extended period of time. This includes clothing, footwear, personal electronics, jewellery, and watches.
Previous insurance documents or any documents relating to the purchase of your property may contain the sum insured. If you cannot access these you can go to a calculator devised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to help with sums insured. www.calculator.bcis.co.uk/
