If there is a managing agent for your property they may provide this insurance so please check with them for confirmation. If you are unsure who insures your property please contact us.

Why might the cost of my building insurance gone up in my service charge statement?
The cost of buildings insurance increased nationwide in 2020. This increase was due to a number of factors including:
- The impact of the coronavirus
- A reduction in insurer capacity, which means it’s been harder and more expensive to find insurance
- Increased risks associated with things like building safety.
