    Home Insurance while renovating 17th May 17 at 1:31 PM
    Hello all,

    My partner and I are close to exchange of contracts and need to sort out building insurance. The house is in desperate need of renovation and will be unoccupied, probably for a few months. Do I need to get specialist insurance or can I get the building insured and add contents insurance later once we have moved in?

    Thanks in advance

    Insuring unoccupied property whilst building work is going on isn't straightforward - see if a local broker (not Swinton) can help.
