    Freeholder's Building Insurance - rip off?

    Freeholder's Building Insurance - rip off? 25th Nov 13 at 7:28 PM

    Does anyone have experience of paying a Freeholder annual buildings insurance?

    I recently bought a one bed flat (leasehold) in London and the freeholder has just sent me an annual bill for the buildings insurance for my flat alone as 700. It seems extortionate.

    It's a one bed flat 66 square metres, in a terraced victorian building that is split into three flats. All three flats pay the same amount of buildings insurance.

    I've asked the freeholder for backup to this fee but he's not replying.

    Appreciate any advice offered!!
