Listed Building Insurance Made Easy
Listed buildings are often considered higher risk by insurers, with specialist knowledge and understanding of the property required. Ultimately it boils down to higher rebuild costs; simply because many of the skills and materials originally used to construct the listed building are not considered mainstream today. Read more in our article about the cost of listed building insurance.
At Intelligent Insurance we provide an ‘advised’ insurance service, where one of our listed building insurance advisers will discuss your property, its construction, history and anything else that makes it unique. This information will allow us to build tailored home insurance cover to suit your needs and ensure you have adequate insurance should you ever need to make a claim.
Home Insurance for all Grades of Listed Building
According to English Heritage over 370,000 listed buildings exist in the UK, with the vast majority built prior to 1945. Buildings are carefully selected for listed status based on their age, heritage and historical significance. Generally speaking, all buildings built prior to 1700 and most built between 1700 and 1840 are listed, especially if they are in their original condition. Find out more about why buildings are listed
Grade II Listed Buildings are most common amongst home owners, cited for their national importance and special interest. Grade I and Grade II* are less common and are of higher importance and interest.
Listed building status is a real accolade – an identification of architecture that should be recognised and celebrated and a sign that it will be protected by English Heritage for centuries to come. The right home insurance policy will ensure that, in the event of a claim, you are able to repair or rebuild the property to the standard set out by English Heritage, and won’t end up out of pocket.
