Period Property Insurance

For all of their charm, style and unique features, period properties are truly beautiful and there is a true passion and pride in the owners of these properties. I take real pleasure in helping my clients insure their period homes as it is crucial that the right type of policy, provided by a high quality insurer is arranged. Unsurprisingly, period properties are expensive to maintain, but they are special and need a high quality, bespoke insurance policy to provide the best possible protection.

Within the UK we are very lucky to have properties extending back hundreds of years, meaning there is a vast quantity of styles and periods of construction. I have put together the table below to summarise.
