Buildings insurance

Buildings insurance covers the main structure of your home. If your home were to subside, burn, or be damaged by extreme weather, your buildings insurance policy covers the costs of rebuilding or repair. It also covers among other things:

  • Permanent fixtures in your home like built-in wardrobes, kitchen surfaces, taps, basins, baths and showers.
  • Outbuildings, boundary walls, gates, pools, drives and paths.

Contents insurance would cover your possessions in your home such as furniture and carpets.

Our buildings insurance has been awarded a 5 Star Rating by independent financial researcher Defaqto so you have the reassurance that you’re buying quality cover.

Because you only find out how good your insurance is when you make a claim we make sure you have all the support and help you need at such a stressful time. That means:

  • Our claims team is available for you to make a claim 24/7, 365 days a year.
  • We’ll give you a named personal claim manager to manage your claim from start to finish, keeping you updated along the way.
  • A tradesperson will be on their way within two hours of your call, to secure your home and make it safe after a break in. They’re fully approved, and local to you. This service is for homes that are unsecure or unsafe as a result of damage.

For specific exclusions to our cover please check our policy wording as this will cover our specific exclusions and the types of claims that we don’t cover for.

Great and timely help during a huge crises

I had zero idea about claiming and Aviva helped from the get-go. I was dealing with a recent divorce and my other half had always dealt with insurance issues, so I had no clue. Aviva coped with me taking my time to make decisions and as I am quite private they were brilliant in allowing me to appoint trusted and previously used tradesmen, but were ready to help if I wanted a second opinion. When everything was pretty much wrapped up, the case handler was superb. She made me laugh so hard during this difficult time when I decided to upgrade part of the décor (it was cheaper to do so). She was so tactful, it made me laugh. That's what I will always remember-how easy it was with Aviva to go through the claims process. Priceless to me with the stress I've been through. Thanks L and B in the claims team and thanks Aviva!
