Whether you’re a private property owner or a landlord, you will likely need building owners insurance if you own any type of building. For those who own a building with a mortgage, this will no doubt be a requirement of your lender. The type of insurance you need, however, will vary. It will depend on the type of building you own, and whether you are the occupant or the landlord. Which is why it’s essential to make sure you choose the right cover for your needs.

What Does Building Owners Insurance Cover?

Building owners insurance will differ dependent on need and level of risk. It will also vary depending on whether you are insuring a commercial or residential property. In general, however, both will cover the loss of damage to a property due to:

  • Fire
  • Explosion
  • Severe weather such as storms, floods, and earthquakes
  • Theft
  • Vandalism
  • Damage due to falling trees or vehicle collision
  • Subsidence

In addition, outer buildings such as garages and sheds, as well as fencing, may be covered.

Finding the Right Insurance for You

While some of what we’ve listed might seem unlikely to happen to your building, the fact that they’re included in an insurance policy means they probably have happened to someone at some point. Ignoring the need for insurance cover, then, could be costly. For landlords, it means their livelihoods are at risk. It’s important, therefore, to get the right insurance in place as quickly as possible.
