Thatched Home Insurance Insurance You Can Trust
Do You Need Thatched Home Insurance?
Thatched Home Insurance protects the building, roof and contents against financial loss. Compared to standard home insurance your thatched home needs different underwriting as the risk of fire is much higher. Therefore, you must speak to an expert in Thatched Home Insurance and at this point The Home Insurer can help.
Overall, we boast a panel of A-rated insurance underwriters, including Aviva, Axa and Fairmead (Legal and General). That is to say we compare Thatched Home Insurance for you. However, not all policies are the same or equal, therefore, you should read all offers of insurance carefully. In short, we can insure any type of thatch property and deliver a bespoke policy to meet your needs.
Wood burners, Chimney Height & Other Thatch House Insurance Needs
Basically, we insure any type of wood burner, open fire or solid fuel stove provided your chimney is at least 1.8metres above the ridge, as per the latest HETAS regulations. However, if you are below this minimum height, you can choose to extend the chimney pot, exclude any solid fuel or install a gas fire and still enjoy superb savings on your Thatched Home Insurance.
We insure mid-terrace thatch properties and listed homes with unusual construction such as cob walls. After that, we insure thatched holiday homes, thatched second homes and thatch let properties. If the property was built before 2009 we can insure it for flooding through the Government and ABI backed Flood Re scheme. Additionally, renovations, prior subsidence and unoccupied thatch properties can be insured. Another key point is all thatch owners must provide a thatch inspection report within the last 10-years and a satisfactory electrical inspection report within the last five years.
