Over the last few years, there have been many notable floods, storms and fires that have had disastrous effects on residential buildings. Situations like this highlight the need to ensure that our properties are adequately insured. (It is important to remember that insurance cover can depend on the accuracy of the valuation placed on the buildings).

It is, after all, the Residents’ Management Company (RMC) who are ultimately responsible for the insurance policy in place and the sum insured that is chosen. It is therefore good practice to obtain professional advice on sums insured for insurance purposes at least every 5 years.

Residentsline has arranged preferential rates for our customers with Barrett Corp Harrington Limited; rates which are based upon your existing sum insured, not the revised sum, with fees agreed in advance.

For a relatively modest price, peace of mind can be obtained so that, in the unfortunate event that disaster strikes, the RMC can focus efforts on rebuilding instead of trying to raise funds to finance an underinsurance shortfall.
