Optional cover- Accidental damage, landlord cover and more 

Optional cover is sometimes overlooked when taking out home insurance. It is however important to know what is standard cover and what is considered optional.  Key optional covers includes: All Risk, Accidental damage, excess water consumption, solar panel cover and many more...

If you rent your home you may think you are fully insured under a normal policy, however you have to include this as an option when taking out insurance. The cost is not excessive to include most types of rentals.

We only work with the best companies. Having dealt with most insurers on the market we have narrowed down the companies that not only offer great value but more importantly are efficient in dealing with claims.

Optional Accidental damage to Build and Contents

This type of cover is optional. It can be applied to buildings and contents. There is a possibility to have accidental cover to contents only and this is great cover if you have young children who may spill their juice on the sofa.

Accidental damage to building is excellent to have as it provides subsidence cover among other things. If the build is a new build then we would highly recommend it.

All Risk cover for valuable items

Having valuable items such as paintings, carpets, collections, antiques or jewellery (including watches) is a pleasure. However a standard policy will have certain limits in terms of the values of cover. Also standard cover will not include All risk cover. This means if the item is insured All Risk, usually jewellery or a watch and is lost or stolen outside the home then you will be fully compensated.

When renting there are different types of rental stays. Those being, short stays and long stays. As well as holiday lets and touristic rentals.

Unlimited Electrical damage

Nowadays homes have more and more electrical wiring. In large homes which are a new build there will be a big investment in cabling. Having unlimited cover here will mean that any fire or power surge, will not put you out of pocket for repairs.

Excess water consumption

Having a large water bill is disconcerting in 2 ways. Number one is the large bill itself! Number two is it means there's a leak somewhere. Standard policies will always cover the search cost for leak and repair. However the water bill is something which can be included as an optional extra.
