What is a Rebuild Cost?
When insuring a building, you must advise the insurer of the value to insure the property. This is known as the rebuild cost. If you get your rebuild costs wrong and they are lower than the correct value then you are at risk. So in the event of claims insurers will only pay a percentage of the claim amount. This method of paying out a percentage of a claim is known as a condition of average.

There are various ways that property owners can calculate the rebuild cost but the easiest way is via https://abi.bcis.co.uk/. The website will work out for you the exact residential rebuilding cost.

Commercial insurance or Business insurance?
People often get confused between commercial insurance and business insurance. Business insurance provides financial protection for businesses. To include public liability insurance and cover for equipment and stock.

Business insurance is designed for sole traders and certified professionals. As well as larger companies with employees. Irrelevant of its size, it is important to get the right protection for your business.

If you work for yourself. You need business insurance to give you the same protection you would have had if you were employed. This also applies if you work from home.

What cover depends on:-

  • How many people you employ

A very pleasing experience. As an IFA I deal with a lot of companies in the Insurance Industry who could learn a lot from how to deal with clients. They issue documents quickly and communication channels are always clear. We have benefited from the fact they can place cover immediately. So, I would advise anyone in a similar position to contact iInsure365.
