    insurance that organises repairs 18th Mar 17 at 10:49 AM
    HI I am looking for and insurance company that organises repairs rather than giving me money.

    I live in a flat and getting things fixed is not always easy like the front door for example.

    any company's that would replace that if something happened to it?

    The front door would be covered by buildings insurance.

    If you live in a leasehold flat (in England or Wales), the freeholder normally arranges buildings insurance. So it's up to the freeholder which insurance company they use. But check your lease - it could say something different.

    You would normally only arrange contents insurance.

    I own the lease so its up to me to get insurance. I know direct line will deal with floods, but I'm not sure if that is all they will do. Guess I will have to ask them all.
