It is important to bear in mind a number of points such as the quality of the insurer and the cover provided, price should not always be the main factor. How repairs to your listed building are carried out is the most important factor, together with a willingness by the insurer to pay your potential claim. It is also vital to understand that any unauthorised work carried out to the property by previous owners will now become your responsibility if the conservation officer decides you must reinstate as per the original, and very few insurance providers out there will cover you for that – that’s where we come in.
