Why do I need specialist insurance if my home has been underpinned?
Two Insurers can view the same risk very differently. In the case of a home which has suffered subsidence, and been underpinned before, many insurers may put restrictions on what is covered and what is not covered, or even not provide cover at all. This is because underpinning in some cases, may not solve the issue completely. Subsidence could happen again, and depending on the severity, can result in a costly claim.
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, or has been underpinned before 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.
