      I would always suggest a surveyor to give you the sum insured for insurance purposes. The calculator in above post is a good free alternative but must be only gives genrally guidance on rebuilding costs. Consequences of over estimating is that you may be overpaying on insurance premium. Consequences of under estimating is that you may have a claim payout reduced or even declined.

        "Landlords Insurance" covers residential or commercial let properties and "Residential Property Owners Insurance" covers any residential property whether owner occupied or let.

        There is an overlap between the two definitions as both cover residential let properties,...

        Most buildings/contents insurance policies will include Property Owners Liability or Public Liability cover. If you are liable for any damage caused to adjacent properties or injury to third parties, this will provide the necessary cover. As always, check the cover is included and look out for any special...

        I have questioned it and they have quoted they want to be transparent...

        Is the quote at 850 pds based on "like for like" insured cover as for the 1750 pds quote ?

        If you have quotes for " EXACTLY the same cover" as insured by freeholder , then you can use as evidence at the FTT ?

        Make an application to the FTT for reducing...

        The block is already insured by the management company but it seems like we need landlords insurance but only to cover public liability (if the tenant gets injured at the property and decides to claim) and also the ability to rehouse the tenant if the block suffered any damage and became inhabitable....
