What is the difference between home insurance, buildings insurance and property insurance?
Home insurance is one of the many types of property insurance that you can take out cover for and is designed specifically for homeowners, to protect the people living in it. Buildings Insurance is a type of Property Insurance that covers the physical fabric of a building such as windows, roof and garage. Property Insurance covers a number of specialised insurances including both home insurance and buildings insurance.
If you have a slightly more unique situation such as multiple properties on the same deeds, you work from home or have an annex which is let out to guests, please visit our Speciality Home Insurance page.
For property including listed buildings, religious buildings or places of interest, please visit our Heritage & Religious Buildings Insurance.

Do I need Property Insurance?
Property Insurance is not a legal requirement but is seen as a top priority for property owners and is often set out as a condition by banks who may lend money against it (i.e a property with a mortgage). If you are a Landlord, for instance, it is your responsibility to protect your property, not your tenants’. It is important to purchase property insurance so that you can protect yours from fire, theft and damage caused to it by water, natural events such as storms and vandalism.
A property is often one of the largest assets a person or business may own and can be costly to repair should anything happen to it. Most damage is out of your control, so it is therefore highly recommended that you take out Property Insurance to avoid large, unexpected costs and protect your asset.
