Understanding Unoccupied Property Insurance

Unoccupied property insurance, also known as empty house insurance, ensures that your property remains protected during prolonged periods of vacancy. This specialized policy covers unforeseen events like floods, fire, theft, and vandalism that may occur while your property is unoccupied.

Different Terms, Same Meaning

Terms like unoccupied property, empty property, and vacant property all refer to the same scenario – a property without occupants.

Common Reasons for Property unoccupancy

Properties might stand unoccupied for various reasons:

  • Inheritance and probate processes
  • Sale of the property while residing elsewhere
  • Ongoing renovations or repairs
  • Extended holidays or business trips
  • Rental property without tenants

Why Notify Your Insurer?

Informing your insurance provider about your property’s vacancy is crucial. Unoccupied homes pose higher risks for damage, theft, and vandalism due to a lack of immediate attention or preventive measures.

Potential Consequences of Not Informing Your Insurer

Failure to inform your insurer about property vacancy might result in policy restrictions or invalidation. This omission could lead to rejected claims if issues arise during the unoccupied period.
