Heritage home insurance

Don’t struggle with heritage home insurance. We can provide specialist cover for your special property.

Heritage homes typically require more expensive repair work in the case of a claim resulting from damage. This is why it’s important to insure your special home with a provider who understands historic buildings. This includes the traditional construction methods and materials, and the restrictions that older building regulations can have on security measures you can use to protect your home.

Heritage home insurance policies take into account the age and construction of the property, as well as the antiques and other valuables that you may keep in the home.

Beware that if you insure under a standard home insurance policy and need to make a claim, you could find you are not suitably covered and might have to pay the bill yourself for any damage caused to your property, or theft of possessions.
