Unoccupied Property Insurance

What is unoccupied home insurance?

Unoccupied home insurance is a separate policy that covers you when you leave your home for longer than 30 days. Your normal cover will usually only ensure you are covered for between 30-60 days, so it is vital to ensure that you are fully protected.

Leaving your home for a longer period is seen as a greater risk for reasons such as burglary, leaks, and damage. If there is no one there to notice these issues, the damage can become bigger and worse by the time you have gotten back.

Unoccupied property insurance can be a minefield, but we are confident that by working with a select number of insurers - we can help.

Why and when would you require unoccupied property insurance?

Here are some examples of times that you may require this insurance policy, but not strictly limited to:

  • Extended holidays or business trips away
  • Renovation, extension, or building work

  • Hospital or care
  • Awaiting completion of a property sale
  • Investment / Rental
  • Empty Property awaiting Funding for Development
