What is Buildings Insurance cover?
If your buy-to-let property is unfurnished and without contents, you can take out an insurance policy that covers buildings only.
Our Buildings Insurance covers the 'bricks and mortar' of your property up to £15 million.
Buildings Insurance can help protect against accidental damage, subsidence, and some of the other costly claims that landlords face.
Your Buildings Insurance policy covers you from damage to your building caused by fire and adverse weather, or flooding, as well as malicious damage or damage caused by burst pipes.
Cover includes fixtures and fittings to outdoor areas such as swimming pools, tennis courts, walls, gates, fences, patios, terraces, drives, yards, car parks and ports, roads, pavements, and the underground pipes and cables you’re responsible for.
There are extra benefits to your Buildings Insurance, from the cost of repair to a garden accessed by emergency services, to the professional removal of a bee's nest. These benefits offer you peace of mind when you're faced with unusual scenarios that could affect your property.
If you choose buildings only cover, you can add contents cover at any time if you need to.
