What is Site Insurance?
This is essential for every Self Builder when investing money into your project, whether it is a Conversion, Extension or complete New Build. Cover is similar to a domestic house insurance and contents policy, and covers the building while under construction. It protects against losses caused by fire, flood, theft, vandalism and accidental damage eventualities that could cost time and money. Building site insurance is as essential to the safe and successful construction of a new development as the tools and materials used to physically create a building and should not be overlooked in an effort to save a small amount of money.
What Does a Site Insurance Policy Cover?
Most site insurance for property developers will cover tools, plant and site huts or caravans that have been hired and are on site during the project. Just as it is important to secure your home in order to validate the insurance policy it is important to remember to keep the site locked and secured when not in use in order to deter potential thieves. Securing the site in this way not only reduces the risk of crime but it also ensures that, should the worst happen and vital tools and equipment is stolen or vandalised, the property development insurance policy that is covering the site will be perfectly valid and will alleviate the financial repercussions of such an event.
