Every year over 70% of properties are underinsured.
This means there is a strong chance that your property is not insured for the right amount. The implications of this can be extremely costly, sometimes so costly that you could lose your entire business! There are all kinds of reasons why your building may not be covered for the correct amount. For example, many property owners insure for the “market value” of their property. But that is incorrect. Properties should always be insured for the actual cost to rebuild.
So what can you do?
The simple solution is to insure for the correct amount. Normally, this involves finding a trusted expert who visits your property to complete a professional assessment. This can be both time-consuming and highly expensive. We can offer a unique low-cost online service. For just £160.00 (incl VAT) we will provide you with a comprehensive Rebuild Cost Assessment (RCA) report without ever having to visit your premises from a qualified RICS surveyor.
