Unoccupied Property Insurance

Trying to find insurance for a property that is unoccupied can be difficult with the number of providers in the market offering different terms, conditions, and exclusions so we have built a straightforward and simple solution for you.

When is a property deemed ‘unoccupied’?

There can be several reasons why a property is unoccupied, whether it’s due to renovations being undertaken, estate administration or extended time abroad. We can offer a policy that can suit your requirements.

Working with our insurer partners we make the process of sourcing unoccupied property insurance simple, quick and affordable, whilst providing cover that emulates a traditional household policy without the need for weekly visitations.
