Building insurance is a compulsory insurance that every lender looks for when arranging for a mortgage. It doesn’t matter whether you are remortgaging or just buying a property. This might have been covered by the annual or monthly maintenance charge if you are buying a leasehold property. But if you are buying a freehold property, it is most likely that the building insurance will need to be paid by you and you will need a building insurance before an exchange of contracts can take place.
What Building Insurance Covers
Building insurance covers permanent fixtures and fabric of your home. This includes doors, windows, bathroom suites, ceilings, fitted kitchens, roof and walls. A building insurance should cover every repair cost or a full rebuild in case of a gas explosion, earthquake, vehicular collision with the building, damage by storm, fire, falling trees, vandalism and damage to plumbing.
You must also ensure that the contents of your home are insured. Content insurance is not mandatory but it is quite necessary as it gives you good protection for your belongings in case they are damaged or stolen.
What content insurance covers
Content insurance covers your possessions against damage by fire, earthquake, explosion, water leakage, flood, storm, theft or attempted theft and loss. The kind of things that you will take with you if you were to move to a new house are the kind of things that are defined by insurers as the contents of your home. They include clothes, money, electrical items, jewelry, furniture and clothes. Curtains, carpets and other fixtures might also be included.
When you are making arrangements for contents insurance, you must check the level of the coverage the insurance policy contain well. It is important that you have the right level of protection. A lot of people do not know that their homes don’t have the right level of protection. There are estimates that about 20% of homes are underinsured due to the fact that the homeowners do not know the true value of the contents of their home.
Why price comparison sites should be avoided
A lot of these price comparison sites only offer standard insurance policies and they won’t take your personal needs and circumstances into consideration. You will be left with a lot of unsolved issues and you won’t be clear on certain things as they won’t give you advice that fits your specific needs.
