Old home insurance

Homes over a certain age are normally more expensive to repair or rebuild. These include homes built in these eras:

  • Georgian
  • Regency
  • Victorian
  • Edwardian.

Our standard home insurance policy may not cover the total cost of rebuilding your home. This is because of:

  • the cost of traditional construction methods
  • the cost of materials used
  • building regulation restrictions.

If you don't have an up-to-date valuation, you may want to consider employing a qualified property surveyor to give you a new rebuilding cost estimate.

Calls may be monitored or recorded for security and training purposes.
