Can I insure a property that is not my permanent residence?

Yes, HomeProtect provides cover for let to tenant properties, holiday homes, weekend homes and unoccupied properties.


How do I find the rebuild cost of my property?

If you purchased the property in the last 5 years your homebuyers survey may include the rebuild cost. However if you purchased the property more than 5 years ago you will need to get an up to date assessment.

If your home is of standard construction (normally brick walls and tile roof), not a listed building and not built before 1720 you can use the free online BCIS Rebuild calculator.

If your home is built with non standard construction materials, or it’s a Listed Building or it was built before 1720, you will need to consult a Chartered surveyor to provide you with an accurate rebuild cost.
