The Personal Representative, Deputy or Attorney are under an obligation to protect and secure any assets in relation to the estate they are managing, including property. This includes ensuring any property is suitably insured against potential damage or loss

Generally unoccupied properties can be more difficult to insure, attracting higher premiums or more onerous conditions in the terms of insurance. Recognising the difficulties faced with by professionals we work with partners to offer a comprehensive unoccupied property policy which provides:

  • Contents cover up to £10,000 as standard
  • No excess payable on claims
  • 3, 6, 9 or 12 month policy terms with refunds for cancellation mid term
  • No routine inspection clauses

Cover can be quickly arranged based simply on an address eliminating unnecessary burdensome questions, for a simple and efficient process

  • Quotations issued based on 4 simple questions
  • No routine inspections of property required
  • Full building and contents cover included as standard

Unoccupied property insurance is available where the owner has passed away or retired to a nursing/care home, including while the property is put on the market for sale.
