    What Types of Flats Can Block Insurance Cover?

    Discover comprehensive block insurance coverage tailored to your unique property, whether it’s a historic listed building or a modern city apartment block.

    Our block insurance policies cater to both standard and non-standard constructions, including listed buildings. Whether you own small converted houses, large detached properties, warehouse and loft conversions, or purpose-built blocks of any size, we’ve got you covered. Our coverage extends to properties in city centres, historic market towns, inland waterways, and seaside destinations, to name just a few. Arranging block of flats insurance can be complex, as it differs significantly from regular home insurance. A block policy provides essential protection for property owners, offering funds to cover repair costs if the property is damaged and even the cost of rebuilding in the event of a ‘total loss.’ It’s not just the building that requires protection. Consider any landscaping, gardens, garages, or outbuildings. Ensure these are covered under your block of flats insurance policy, and if not, you may be able to add them for comprehensive coverage.
