Blocks of Flats Insurance

Insuring a block of flats or a building converted into flats is very different to insuring other types of property. With flats insurance there is inevitably a need for the policyholder to fulfil the requirements of the lease whilst, at the same time, recognising the beneficiaries of the policy i.e. the flat owners.

Unfortunately, many policies that are sold for blocks of flats are, in fact, based on generic property owners’ policies and, as such, the policy wording may not be sufficient to meet your needs. Some of the major areas you should consider include:-

  • Unoccupancy terms
  • Types of occupants/tenants
  • Inspection of unoccupied flats & flat roofs
  • Adequacy of sum insured for alternative accommodation according to block size
  • Legal requirement to inspect lifts & arrange Employers Liability
