    You’re covered if your washing machine, dishwasher, central heating system or fridge leaks, providing they’ve been kept in a good state of repair.

Making buildings insurance personal

When it comes to buildings cover, we don’t believe in one size fits all. Tailor your buildings insurance with optional extras and cover upgrades that suit you and your home. 

We understand the importance of protecting your home on a personal level. Perhaps your home has been in your family for decades, or even centuries? Or, maybe you built your home in a way to suit your family's needs? Every homeowner has different needs or requirements when it comes to buildings insurance, which is why our cover is so unique. You can rest assured that our bespoke cover ticks all the boxes for your buildings insurance expectations.

Home emergency

Take the panic out of a situation with our home emergency optional extra. Reassurance for a range of problems such as a break in, or central heating that doesn’t work. Simply call our 24 hour emergency helpline. We’ll assess the situation and send out one of our recommended contractors. It’s important you don’t call your own tradesperson as the work may not be paid for by the claim. Please see the buildings insurance policy booklet for more information.

Buildings accidental damage

Choose accidental damage insurance as an optional extra and you’re covered for those mistakes that are expensive to fix. Put your foot through a floorboard in the loft or spill a glass of red wine on the carpet – with accidental damage as an optional extra, you’re covered.
