As a result of increased risks of property damage, vandalism and contractor injuries, buildings under this category do not qualify for liability, fire insurance or the normal hazard policies. Your preferred insurer should therefore provide you with a building insurance cover.
Basically, a building only insurance protects the permanent fixtures of your property such as the exterior and interior walls, roof, bathroom fittings, floors, ceilings, and outbuildings such as sheds, garages and fences.
Since a building only insurance protects you against the worst, having a good policy that covers full repair or rebuilding in case the unexpected happens is vital in helping to protect your home against a broad range of unpredictable events such as floods, fires, storms or theft.
Storm Assist is an insurance expert you can count on regardless of whether you’re a homeowner, real estate investor or individual just starting out; whatever threatens your building, we’ll help you cover it.
Since our inception, we’ve been helping our clients to compare insurance policies and find the best prices and policies. But, don’t just take our word for it. Our existing clients are thrilled and have rated us the best place to find discounted insurance policies for buildings only.
Every year, we help many of our clients to find new deals that save them money as they seamlessly switch to more affordable insurance providers. Why should you get ripped off by the big insurance companies when you can save on your insurance cover?
Does your flat need a building insurance? Trust Storm Assist to give you peace of mind. Is your building in a flood prone area? No worries.
Our insurance agents can help you protect your home and contents against flooding regardless of where you are. We also encourage our customers to buy a flood insurance cover to protect their properties against the effects of floods.
With our in-depth know how, we help you find insurers with flexible, affordable premiums. If you’re using a mortgage, your lender will insist on a building only insurance cover to safeguard their property. If you’re in a rental, then your landlord should buy a policy to protect the building.
It is important to note that building insurance only covers damage to the building and not the contents.
It’s important also to check with your insurance provider to ensure their policies cover your building against things like accidental damage. When you hire our professional insurance agents, they will ensure the cover is comprehensive and covers you fully since accidental damage currently takes one in three of the claims filed by our contractors meaning it’s worth considering.
Building only insurance policies offered by our professional agents indemnify the cost of repairing damage to the building caused by:
- Fire, storms and flooding
- Structural damage as a result of fallen trees
- Water damage to a building when pipes burst
- Accidental damage (can be optional)
