How do I Arrange Insurance for a Listed Building?
In many ways, it's the same as for a regular home, although you may need higher sums insured. Typically, listed buildings cost more to repair and rebuild than regular homes. Having the correct sums insured means that claim values are less likely to fall short of your needs.
Why does it cost more?
If you own a listed building, you are required, by law, to maintain the structure – and its fittings – in its original state. As such, you may need to use specialist or unusual materials to repair any damage. In addition, you may need specialist professionals to complete any works to ensure you get the same quality finish.
Plus, it's not just the main building governed by these laws. Boundary walls and outbuildings are often listed and must be repaired in keeping with the original.
As a result, the cost to rebuild or repair a listed property is typically higher than that of a standard home.
We recommend enlisting the services of a specialist surveyor to assess the value of your home. Over the years, we've built up strong relationships with several surveyors and would be happy to recommend someone suitable.
