If you have just bought a property with buildings already in it or are intending on building fixed structures, you probably need to have insurance. The purpose of building insurance is to safeguard your property from damage as a result of nature or human actions. It only covers only the structure of the building itself and not the contents of the building itself. A different insurance cover will protect the things inside the building. Various building insurance covers do exist, and each serves a given purpose.
Loss and damage insurance is a building insurance. This type of insurance covers you against acts of nature. This means you are covered against damage caused by natural disasters usual weather patterns like lighting strikes or rain damage. This building usually will protect your main house as well as other buildings in your compound.
It is possible to include the regular damage cover in this kind of insurance. This cover will protect the accompaniments to your building such as solar systems and gasses in the windows.
Those of us who are lucky enough to own more than one home and rent out the additional properties, can invest in building insurance to protect the building but not the
tenant’s properties. The tenant properties are in their care but not the landlords. However tenants tend to cause considerable damage to property, and building insurance can cover the cost of repairs. One can also include legal and maintenance cover under this kind of insurance. If the tenant wish to be protected against theft and other damage cases their have to get their insurance covers.
The other type of insurance is the builder risk. This kind of insurance covers the building against damages while it is still under construction. If damages of any sort were to occur before the building is complete the insurance company will be responsible for the repairs.
So many kinds of insurance are they from which you can choose from, and the one you pick will be specific to the business you want to protect. Old houses with some historical relevance will only be insured for an estimate as no one is sure about their worth. Insurance on the building of historic significance will cover the true value of the house but not the costing of rebuilding it.
Building insurance for commercial buildings varies accordingly to what use the building is put. The purpose of the building cover is to help you get your building on track when harm occurs to it without investing a lot as the owner. The more risk your business faces, the more you will pay in insurance premiums.
