What makes my home a ‘subsidence risk’?
You would be surprised to find out what can make your home ‘subsidence-risk’ and once you know what to look for, you can go to the specialists to get the cover you require.
Insurers tend to view properties or areas as a subsidence risk if they have suffered from subsidence before, or are likely to suffer from subsidence in the future. Subsidence can occur for many reasons, but are mostly due to landslip as a result of geological reasons. If your home or others around yours have suffered from subsidence, then it’s likely that you live in a subsidence area.
Why can’t I just get standard home insurance?
You will probably find that if your home is considered to be in a subsidence area, then many insurers will not offer you cover. If they are willing to cover you, it can often result in high premiums and excesses. This is why it is essential that you go to the specialists to get a competitive premium and excess for your home.
