Period Listed Property Insurance

Such a special property demands special care and attention

Owning a period or listed property is a massive responsibility and requires specialist help with any aspect of its upkeep. Insurance is no different.

Macbeth has vast experience in arranging bespoke insurance policies for period property including Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 2* buildings. There are approximately 372,000 properties in England currently protected by listing, and of those, over 90% are Grade 2.

Owners of such properties need to be well advised when it comes to the required specialist insurance cover.

Understanding the difficult area of rebuilding a period property is crucial and owners must ensure that their insurance policy provides an adequate sum insured to reinstate a property using the frequently non-standard materials and specialist workmanship required.

We work with a number of specialist insurers who have the experience and policy wording needed when insuring a period property. Dependent on the size of a risk, some insurers will also provide a free appraisal of your home to help you assess your sums insured correctly.

β€œI have been very impressed by the service that the Macbeth team have provided to me. They have given good and impartial advice and the policies and support to-date have met my needs fully. They are able to explain matters in a clear and articulate way that increases one’s confidence that you are getting the best deal (balance of cost and quality) that meets one’s needs. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.”
