    Buildings Insurance - Excess Protection (or an alternative)? 8th Jan 18 at 7:40 PM
    The management company for my block of flats are responsible for arranging the Buildings Insurance, but due to previous problems within the block where water leaks have affected surrounding flats the insurance company they go with have set a huge 5000 excess for all water-leak claims.

    I've had no luck with my online searches so wondered if anyone here can advise on the following:-
    • Is there such a thing as separately bought Excess Insurance Protection for buildings (like there is for car rentals)?
    • Alternatively, is anyone aware of a Contents Insurance provider that would cover water leaks (including third party damage) as part of a Contents Only policy?
    Many thanks

    There is a company that offers excess insurance on home Insurance risks of up to 6000.

    Up to you to investigate whether this is suitable or not.

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.
