Renovation Insurance

JM Glendinning recognises there is a growing trend of home owners renovating or extending their homes.

Most household insurance policies restrict or exclude cover automatically whilst building works are ongoing. We would strongly advise against relying on your builder’s insurance policy to cover the works, particularly if there is a joint contract (JCT) in place which stipulates who is responsible for insurance.

When looking to insure a property being renovated, there are many different factors to consider:

  • Household insurance limitations or exclusions

  • Your home or the existing structure during the works

  • The works which should reflect the cost of the contract including professional fees, VAT, debris removal and any materials supplied by you and not the contractor such as windows, lighting, kitchens (this is known as free issue materials)

  • Liability and understanding your legal obligations

  • JCT Contracts provide protection to both you and your contractor and can save significant time and money in the event of a loss or dispute. It also gives a framework for your project to be delivered on time and on budget
