If you own a period, heritage or historical home that is Grade I or II listed, it’s essential you have appropriate insurance.
A listed property is one that is of special historical, cultural or architectural importance, which, in the event of damage, requires specialist repairs in keeping with the building’s historical character and age. With many years’ experience arranging cover for listed buildings, we can provide high quality cover with a specialist insurer to meet your individual needs.
Quality cover that provides specialist services
For example, your home may require specialist or period materials, which may increase the rebuild cost. Modern features, such as double glazing or window locks may not be appropriate. Our cover provides access to a specialist surveyor, who can apply for the required consents and liaise with advisory or regulatory bodies. The surveyor can also recommend contractors with the necessary expertise and experience, who understand your building’s heritage and architectural features, and who work with traditional building methods. This will ensure your property retains its listed status and value.
What your cover includes:
- All grades of listed buildings
- Renovation, repair or conversion
- Repairing and replacing non-standard materials
- Labour costs for skilled craftsmen
- Alternative accommodation if you need to vacate the property
- Fire, flood or storm damage
- Burglary and theft
- Accidental damage
- Optional home emergency
