It is essential that all buildings are adequately insured. As such, buildings insurance is automatically arranged for all new owners and charged through quarterly factoring invoices.
If you wishes to arrange your own buildings insurance, you must provide a copy of your policy schedule in order to allow us to cancel insurance arranged on their behalf. We carry out an annual check to ensure that owners with their own buildings insurance are adequetly insured.
You should be aware that their cover may be jeopardised if your factoring account is in arrears.
You may wish to contact one of the following companies, who provide cover specifically for tenants and owners in properties owned and factored by housing associations:
- The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) - Diamond Home Contents Insurance - through Royal and Sun Alliance Insurance plc.
- This Tenants Contents - through Thistle Insurance Services Ltd, a JLT Group Company.
Application packs can also be obtained from our office.
