Why Rigsby for unoccupied house insurance when most companies won’t touch them?

We often get asked “how can you offer unoccupied house insurance when most companies won’t” – Unoccupied house insurance requires an in depth knowledge of the types of problems that can occur, this may seem obvious .However, if there is no one residing there, it makes it a very easy target for vandals and thieves to gain access and significantly damage the property. Usually the boiler and copper pipes are the first thing to go and most of the time this leads to escape of water which puts the cost of repair into the tens of thousands, especially as there is no one there to limit the damage. One of the other reasons other companies won’t insure an unoccupied house is because it is very difficult to train staff and adapt systems to vet and underwrite these types of risk properly. Give us a call as we pride ourselves on our unoccupied house insurance products.
