Blocks of Flats Insurance
Blocks of flats insurance is a very complex area and one in which Lockyers Insurance has many years’ experience. Because a flat in a block is not a completely separate entity, there are special risks and responsibilities to the others in the block, so the insurance is a specialist area. If you are a landlord that owns a whole block, you will need all of the usual cover that landlords need, such as Landlord Liability, loss of rent, rent guarantees and the rest, but you will also need more specific cover on your block of flats insurance policy.
No matter how large a building you need to cover, if it is in sole occupancy the insurance policy is relatively easy to arrange as any damage will only impinge on one individual. With flats this is very different and although you as a landlord would not be expected to prevent a top floor tenant letting his bath overflow and flood all of the flats below, you would be liable for repairs in all of those flats. This means that unless you had appropriate blocks of flats insurance that covered against this sort of risk, you could quite literally go out of business. Hopefully you would have encouraged your tenants to take out proper tenants’ insurance to cover their personal possessions, but repairs to the fabric of the building would be your responsibility.
Lockyers Insurance have three generations of experience in commercial insurance and landlords’ insurance is one of their specialities. Whether you have a single block of flats of just a few floors or a portfolio containing many multi-level blocks, you will need to speak to one of our trained advisers. We can tailor your policy to suit your specific needs and although we are independent insurance brokers we deal with all of the major insurance providers in such volume that we are able to get the very cheapest quotes for even quite complex situations.
