Block Insurance

Recommended Posts

My girlfriend has a BTL flat in a converted grade 2 listed mansion in Bristol. 


There are 5 flats in total, and the owners share the freehold (in a ltd co management company).  


The directors (all flat owners, mix of btl landlords and owner occupiers) have a Property Management company deal with block maintenance and insurance.


The insurance for the block/mansion..... is over £5000 per year. Remember, that's 5 (FIVE) flats. Buildings, plus a small amount of contents insurance (not sufficient for 5 flats).


Two questions;


1. I think that's an obscene price, and smell a rat.... Does this price seem reasonable to other hubbers?


2. Can anyone list some options for block insurance, ideally via a keen broker?


My thanks in advance

Hi James

That price suggests a rebuild cost of approximately £5million. Are they all mansion sized flats and listed? If not, then chances are you are paying a lot more than needed.

If interested, give me a call or email below and I'll sort out very high cover but at a market leading price. We insure a lot of blocks of flats!
