Do I need Self Build Insurance?

During a self build or renovation project, it’s natural to focus on those finishing touches or dreaming of the day your home is finally complete.

As a result, it can be easy to overlook your insurance requirements.

Unfortunately, ordinary home insurance is unlikely to cover your self build or renovation project due to the associated risks involved.  

If you are building an extension and damage is caused to your existing build, your home insurance policy may not cover this. That’s why it’s vital to get a tailored self build insurance policy.

At AbbeyAutoline we work on behalf of a wide range of insurers that can provide specialist self build insurance that will support your self build or house project.
