Buildings and contents insurance is a type of insurance policy that provides protection for a customer's property against various risks and damages. It consists of two main components:


1. Buildings Insurance: This part of the policy covers the physical structure of the property, including the main building, walls, roof, floors, and fixtures. It typically provides financial protection against damages caused by events such as fire, flooding, storm damage, subsidence, and vandalism. If a covered event occurs and causes damage to the structure of the property, the insurance company will cover the cost of repair or rebuilding. When purchasing a Freehold property, it is likely your solicitor will require you to have this insurance in place when you exchange contracts.

2. Contents Insurance: This component covers your belongings and possessions inside the property, such as furniture, electronics, appliances, clothing, and other personal items. Contents insurance protects against loss or damage due to events like theft, fire, flooding, accidental damage, and more. If the insured belongings are stolen, damaged, or destroyed, the insurance company will reimburse the customer for the cost of replacing or repairing them.


In summary, buildings and contents insurance offers comprehensive coverage for your property, protecting both the physical structure and the belongings inside against a range of risks and potential damages. It provides peace of mind and financial security in case of unforeseen events that could lead to significant repair or replacement costs.
