What is 'new for old' cover?
If you claim for an item that is lost or so damaged that it can't be repaired, we'll pay you whatever it costs to buy a new one at today's purchase price. You won't lose any money when you have to replace an item.
There are some exceptions to 'new for old' cover
For items such as clothing, household linen and pedal cycles, wear and tear is taken into account when a claim is settled.
Any cash settlement may also take into account trade discounts.
What is a policy excess?
An excess is an amount that you pay towards the cost of a claim. There are two types of policy excess:
This is the amount your insurer will ask you to pay towards the cost of a claim. You'll be told how much this will be before you buy insurance. Make sure you're happy this amount before buying insurance.
The amount you'd be prepared to pay on top of the compulsory amount. The higher you go, the lower your premium.
Can I pay a voluntary excess?
Yes, discounts are available on the price you pay for your insurance if you want to pay an additional voluntary excess on claims you make.
Do I get accidental damage cover automatically?
Our contents insurance includes accidental damage cover to non-portable electrical and gas appliances as standard and can include the rest of your contents for an extra payment.
Accidental damage cover is included for buildings insurance. This cover provides cover against accidental damage to the fabric of your home, eg floors, walls and ceilings.
Will my building society accept your policy?
Yes, they may need a copy of your home insurance policy documents, we'll provide these free of charge.
Will you pay any administration fees if I move away from my building society?
