Insurance as unique as your development
and why you may require a more specialist policy
Have you bought a wreck, a shell or a pile of rubble? Is it listed or of historic interest? If this is you, then we know you’re not afraid of hard work!
Such projects are a real labour of love – not to mention involving a million decisions concerning construction, design, process, cost and decoration.
Of course, you need insurance - during the build but also for your home and contents afterwards. And it’s not just “normal” or “non-standard” insurance – that just won’t cut it for this kind of renovation or transformation.
Don’t fall at the final hurdle. Make sure that your BESPOKE property is PROTECTED in the present and the future. Listed Property Protection policies are underwritten by the most trusted insurance companies in the United Kingdom.
Listed Property Protection (LPP) can help every step of the way. HOW?
- Advising on the status of your property. We have access to specialist surveyors who can assess and produce a professional report that highlights aspects of your property that are listed or of historic importance
- Guide on what you can and cannot do and the implications of using certain materials and building techniques (often this is restricted and stringently checked by a conservation officer, at various points of the project)
- Put you in contact with materials and construction specialists
- Assess risk that pertains to your particular site or project
- Offer a friendly, non-obligation overview of your insurance liabilities and responsibilities
- Put together a bespoke insurance package that covers you for all aspects of your project – including putting right unauthorised work by a previous owner and covering alternative accommodation should things go wrong
