Unoccupied Property Insurance UK – FAQs
Can you get insurance for an unoccupied house?
The simple answer is yes you can get insurance for an unoccupied house. Unoccupied home insurance covers you when your property is empty for longer than your standard home insurance policy will allow. InsuraHome Unoccupied Property Insurance can provide cover for unoccupied properties for periods of 90, 180, 270 days or annual cover.
What counts as an unoccupied house?
You may be wondering – how long can I leave my house unoccupied so that It’s still covered? In terms of standard normal home insurance, an unoccupied property is usually one that has been left uninhabited for more than 30 days. This is because most standard home insurance policies will not cover your property if it is left unoccupied for longer than 30-60 days because of the increased risk of theft, vandalism, a burst pipe being undiscovered and more. Therefore, there are specialised non-standard unoccupied property insurance policies available on the market designed to cover these risks and circumstances.
How much does unoccupied home insurance cost?
The cost of an unoccupied property insurance policy will vary depending on many factors such as the value of the property, condition of the property as well as the location and security of the property as if the property is in an area with a high crime rate then the price of cover is likely to increase. In general, unoccupied property insurance will cost more than a standard home insurance policy in terms cost per day of cover due to the additional risks associated with an unoccupied property.
How do I prepare my unoccupied property for winter?
