Cover just for your property
Our Buildings Insurance ensures your property's structure is protected if it’s damaged. And with add-ons like accidental damage and legal services cover, you can tailor your policy to suit you. Our Defaqto 5 Star Rated Buildings insurance starts from just £113 – that’s all 10% of customers paid (excludes optional extras) 1.
Unlimited sum insured
There’s no limit to the overall amount we’ll cover your property for – so you don’t need to worry about being underinsured 2
If the damage is covered by your insurance, we'll pay for alternative accommodation until your home is fit to live in
Finding and fixing leaks
If there’s a water leak causing damage to your home, we’ll cover up to £5,000 to uncover the source and make good afterwards
Don’t forget, you can take out our Buildings Insurance on its own, or together with our Contents Insurance as a complete Home Insurance package.
