    plumbing and/or electricity insurance 15th Sep 18 at 2:13 PM
    Can anyone recommend a good company to provide plumbing and electricity insurance cover? One that will actually turn up when needed.

    It would not include our boiler system as that is already insured and for complex reasons we're sticking with that company and they don't do plumbing etc as well.

    I know British Gas do this but have been "burnt" by them before...

    Or is there an online tool for comparison of this sort of insurance?

    thanks.

    another option is to self fund and keep money away for this purpose every month, and keep a list of local trusted tradesman

    Sadly - finding a local trusted tradesman is the issue - I don't think they exist. Unless you want to spend 10,000 on a new bathroom they don't want to know or they are a crook.

    No trusted tradesmen in your area? Who will your insurance use when you need an emergency repair?

    Is it insurance or a service plan you need though?

    What about adding home emergency cover on your building or contents insurance, unless you want to cover everything?
