How well insured are you?

If your house was to fall down tomorrow would your current home insurance policy cover you for a complete rebuild? How much would a rebuild cost? It's certainly not an easy figure to try and come up with and that is why a Building Reinstatement Valuation could be useful.

This is one valuation that does tend to be overlooked but is worth carrying out every few years especially if you have a very unique property or perhaps own a property which is split up into flats.

A qualified surveyor can carry out the assessment and calculate the full rebuild cost of the property. It is up to the property owner to ensure that they have suitable insurance cover, so a survey is worth having.

If you don't have the correct level of insurance and your property does suffer a major drama then the insurer isn't obliged to pay the rebuild cost as this hasn't been catered for in the first place. It is advisable to have a full Building Reinstatement Valuation every three years or if building work is carried out.
