Building & Contents Replacement
It’s up to you to decide the sums insured and the type and level of cover that you want. People generally want enough insurance to cover the property’s estimated replacement value.
Having enough cover in place reduces the risk of having to cover the costs and incident to your property yourself. It is important to consider that we will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser (subject to the policy terms and conditions) which means you should also be careful not to over insure.
To help you we have provided some calculators as useful guide to assist you in estimating the replacement value of your landlord building and contents.
