Specialist Old House Insurance

When you have the pleasure of owning an older house, getting the right home insurance cover is essential as the costs of repairs to these special buildings can be more expensive, especially when the construction materials are considered to be non standard.

Intelligent Insurance consider the age and construction of these properties to provide a tailored quote to your home and circumstances*.  If your home is listed, this also needs to be noted.

Insuring your home without taking these factors into account could leave you under insured in the event of a claim, so use a specialist provider to help you get the right cover for your old house.

  • Victorian, Stuart, and Georgian houses
  • Specialist knowledge to get the right cover for your home

Frequently Asked Questions

It is possible that insuring an older home will be more expensive than a more modern building.  This is because it is likely the property has been constructed from some non standard materials or materials that are no longer easy to buy or are expensive to replace.  There are several factors that are used to calculate insurance costs and age of property is one, as well as the area you live, your claims history and other personal circumstances.

At Intelligent Insurance, we provide cover for houses built after the year 1700.

Check the title register or title deeds that you obtained when you purchased the house.  Alternatively you can contact HM Land Registry or us a free tool such as Property Checker

A rough estimate of when the house was built is enough information to get an insurance quote.

We offer several additional coverage options to provide comprehensive protection for your period property. These include accidental damage cover, legal expenses, and coverage for valuable personal property, among others. Our team can help you customise a policy that perfectly fits your needs.
