Getting home insurance for high net worth properties is an essential part of managing risk and when it comes to finding a suitable cover it is essential that you partner with a specialist within this sector.
It can be easy to fall into the trap of collecting cute mammal soft toys from internet web portals but when you are staking your worldly goods such as your home and its contents you owe it to yourself to do the job properly.
When it comes to insuring properties that are valued over £1 million the insurers are very cautious about the level of risk they are taking on and need reassurance (literally!) and will ask a host of questions. Generally the web portals that advertise across the media are aimed at the masses. It is a one-size fits all approach and by and large it works judging by the millions that are thrown at it. However, when something quirky or different, such as a large, listed or old property is thrown at them they default to the ‘computer says no’ syndrome or worse still provide a solution that is not fit for purpose as their underwriting intelligence capability is limited.
So how do you conduct your research if the insurance does not cater for your needs? Well one solution is to speak to a Specialist Insurer Broker in the field of high net worth insurance solutions. Inevitability their panel of insurers will be greater than you could hope to approach on your own and let them do the leg work for you.
