Buildings insurance protects your business’s property should it be damaged by fire, flood, burst pipes or storms and other named perils (impact, lightning etc). If you own the building your business operates from, or if you’ve made changes to rented premises, Buildings Insurance is a must.
Without the right insurance in place, if your property does suffer damage you’d have to pay the repair costs yourself and, in the worst case, you may not be able to continue to trade. It’s also important to make sure your building is insured for the full rebuild cost, including any fees and the cost of site clearance, and not just the market value.
- What’s typically covered?
- Accidental damage cover
- Cover for standard risks such as storms, floods and fire
- Rebuilding costs, which includes all professional fees and associated costs
- Trace and access, cover for the cost of locating damage to cables, underground pipes and drains
