Blocks of flats insurance
Block of flats insurance covers Apartment blocks, from small to very large. It refers to insurance that has coverage of many residencies within one building. If a house is converted to self-contained flats or purpose-built blocks. Insurance brokers consider a property with two or more flats to be a block. This could be either a small block of flats or a large block.
Insuring a single flat within a block can be difficult. A flat in a block can be open to increased risks due to the flats surrounding it. A dedicated block insurance policy covering all possibilities and eventualities is the way to go.

Buildings should always be insured for the amount it would cost to rebuild them. However, fewer than one in ten properties throughout the United Kingdom are covered correctly. This could mean that your property could be over-insured and you are potentially paying too much for your property buildings insurance especially on a block of flats. If you are underinsured, you face a reduction in the payout in the event of a claim. It is well known that during claims that these can be reduced by £100s and £1000s due to under insurance.
