Insurance for buildings – overview

Home insurance is one of life’s necessities – although it isn’t illegal not to have it, you’d be doing yourself a huge disservice if you didn’t have it and something happens, like a fire or flood. Insurance for buildings doesn’t have to be expensive, either.

The average annual cost for a detached home with a rebuild value of £100,000 (the amount that you have to insure the home for) is £231 – quite reasonable when you consider that it could pay out that amount should the worst happen.

Why choose Devitt?

Here at Devitt, we’ve been arranging insurance since 1936. We’ve learnt a great deal over the years about what our customers want and need from their insurance policies as well as their providers.

Our aim is to provide you with everything you could ever want or need from your insurance, all with a friendly face. Our policies are all completely transparent and if you ever have any questions, all you need to do is ask.

We’re also one of the leading claims handlers in the UK, so we’re basically you’re one stop shop for all things insurance-related, whether you want to insure your home, your business or your car. To make a claim, just give us a ring on 0345 872 3611 – 24 hours a day and seven days a week, our team will be waiting to take your call.

How to get a quote

To get a buildings insurance quote, you can either call us on 0345 872 3614, or fill out the quote form online.

You’ll need to give us some information, like the location of your home, whether you’ve made a claim in the past, whether you live in a flood-risk area and how safe and secure your home is overnight – for example, the type of lock that you have on your door, the type of door and whether or not you have any additional security like a motion-sensor alarm system.

The more safe and secure your home, the cheaper your cover will be, although if you do live in a flood-risk area unfortunately there isn’t much you’ll be able to do to reduce your premiums!
