If you are a Freehold Landlord, you may or may not be aware ofÂ the following important issues:
Â Â The Freeholder does not have to go for the lowest premium, but a reasonable one.
Â Â To ensure the level of cover is reasonable, the use of a Broker is recommended.
Â Â Â The provisions for insurance, including the type, the level, who can underwrite, who arranges it and how payment is split amongst Leaseholders (and / or Freeholders), can vary significantly from lease to lease.
Â Â Often, over time, the Rebuild Cost of the building moves out of sync with the Sum Insured. An insurance re-valuation may be worthwhile, and its cost may be recoverable from the Lessee.
Â Â ClaimsÂ mustÂ be made within a strict timeframe of the loss event, and in line with a number of other protocols, in order to maximise the chance of a payout.
Â Â Whilst damage caused by an insured peril, such as Fire, Lightning, Theft or Flood, will normally be covered, damage though general wear and tear or lack of maintenance will not be.
