Awaiting property sale

Empty and awaiting property sale

CoverBuilder insurers you if you have already moved out or you have inherited the property and it’s on the market. This specialist cover protects your home even while you are not living in it, no matter how long that may be for. Unlike standard insurers who won’t cover properties that are unoccupied for over 30 days, our specialist policies have extended unoccupied periods available. That means your cover can remain, even if your house takes longer to sell than expected.

The levels of cover vary for unoccupied properties so please check the terms of your quote carefully before submitting.
