We always put the utmost importance on your particular requirements, offering tailor made policies to suit your own individual requirements. You only pay for the cover which you require and our premiums are as low as £175. We’ll design a straightforward policy which works for you.
Thatched property owners can become restricted in some areas depending on the individual Grade Listings for each building.
The following tips may help you bring down the cost of your thatched property insurance:
Most thatched home owners who have lived in their property for a significant time will already have required the services of a local thatcher. However, if you’ve only just bought your thatched home or can’t contact your usual surveyor, you’ll need to contact someone if things go wrong.
AIC is unique in having an approved thatcher’s database around the UK, monitored by our team as well as regional associations in order to ensure consistent quality of work. We have ongoing relationships with several qualified professional thatcher’s, ready to be called upon as soon as you need assistance. We offer an unparalleled service in which you can be assured that all repairs will be carried out by trusted craftsmen whenever you need to make a claim on your thatched property insurance.
