Underinsurance is a rising problem in the buy to let industry. This occurs when a landlord provides an inaccurate rebuild cost of their property for insurance purposes. Not only does this threaten to affect the settlement of any potential claims, but there is also contractual conditions under the lease that require full reinstatement of the building. "Property owners should carry out professional building valuations at least every three years. This guarantees an accurate rebuild cost and enables the insurer/loss adjuster to concentrate on settling any claims that may arise rather than having to investigate possible underinsurance issues and causing unnecessary delays." It is increasing likely that mortgage lenders will request a property is insured for a minimum amount. In severe underinsurance cases, failure to meet this contractual obligation could even lead to foreclosure on any loans secured against the property. iInsure365 can not advise on your rebuild cost. The best way to calculate this is to use a professional surveyor, however you can also use the association of British Insurers rebuild cost calculator.

While our landlords insurance cover offers protection against unforeseen circumstances, there are certain precautions that should be taken by all landlords to reduce the risk of a property falling victim to the British winter. We'll be documenting steps each day you can take to prevent any unnecessary headaches. First in the series, the risk of burst pipes.
Just a small leak can cause no lack of cost and inconvenience. There are simple precautionary measures that can be taken to reduce the chance of a potential nightmare. It is essential that the thermostat is fully operational and that the boiling and heating system is checked regularly. Ensure that dripping taps are fixed and check dripping overflow pipes, which can indicate a problem in the system. Check hoses to any plumbed in appliances. Check the insulation on your water pipes and cold water tank - those in the attic or other vulnerable spaces should be lagged or similarly protected. Consider leaving loft hatches slightly open to allow warmer air to enter any loft space housing water pipes and leave internal doors open to allow warm air to circulate throughout the house. Disconnect any hoses and make sure any external taps are turned off. Ensure that the heating is kept permanently on during times of severe temperatures. Make sure you water supply is easily accessible and can be turned off when needed. Should your main heating system fail during the winter months, we recommend that electric convector or fan-assisted heaters with thermostatic cut-outs that operate in the event of over-heating are used as a temporary measure. Portable heaters should be sited well clear of combustible materials and, where possible, protected against the possibility of being knocked over or moved accidentally by the fitting of guards. Temporary heaters should not be left unattended for long periods or used when the building is unoccupied, and should never be moved when switched on. Electric radiant heaters and paraffin/oil fired heaters should never be used, even as a temporary measure. If you discover a frozen pipe, don't wait for it to burst. Turn off your water supply and then slowly thaw the affected pipe by introducing gentle heat to the area, such as with a hairdryer, space heater or hot water bottle. Do not attempt to thaw the pipe with a blow torch or other open flame. If a pipe does burst, turn off the water supply at the stopcock and try to catch any excess water in a bucket or other container. (Do not use any electrics if you believe these may have been affected by the escaping water). You'll need to have these checked by a professional electrician.

When taking out landlords insurance for your buy to let property, your insurer will want to know the rebuild costs of the property to be insured. Rebuild costs are calculated by taking the following into account:What are rebuild costs? The amount it would cost to rebuild if the property were destroyed. In addition to the costs of materials and labour, professionals & fees, such as surveyors, should also be included. The rebuild costs directly affect how much your rental property should be insured for and, in turn, the amount of insurance premium you need to pay. If the rebuild cost is calculated incorrectly then you as the landlord could pay the price. Are regular reviews necessary? It is essential to review your property & rebuild costs on a regular basis to make sure you have the right level of insurance cover. This is particularly the case if you make any changes to the property (such as building an extension) which could increase the rebuild costs and the level of cover you need. Some insurers use index linking* (definition below) to review the rebuild costs and your insurance premiums could then be altered in line with this. Why do you need to know the rebuild costs? Insurers need to know how much a building should be insured for in case it is destroyed and needs to be rebuilt. As the property owner, the onus is on you, the landlord, to get the sum right. Help is available, with online links included here to help you find a chartered surveyor or to estimate your rental property & rebuild costs using an online calculator. Are rebuild costs the same as a property market value? Rebuild costs are NOT the same as a property market value or your council tax band valuation. In fact, market value is often higher than the rebuild costs because the market value of your property includes the land on which it sits and land accounts for roughly one-third of the market value. Rebuild costs do not include the value of the land because often when a building is destroyed the land is unaffected and so can be rebuilt upon. If you are tempted to cut corners and provide your insurer with the market value rather than the rebuild costs then think again, as you are more than likely to be left out of pocket with high insurance premiums. How are rebuild costs calculated? There are two ways to calculate rebuild costs: Use an online calculator. Hire a professional chartered surveyor. Although an online calculator can provide you with a rebuild costs estimate based on the information you provide, the most reliable way in which to calculate the rebuild costs of your property is to use a professional chartered surveyor. Online resources To find a professional chartered surveyor visit: www.ricsfirms.com To calculate your estimated rebuild costs online visit: http://calculator.bcis.co.uk By taking the time to check the true rebuild costs of your rental property and by reviewing the costs on a regular basis, you can make sure you've got the right level of cover. It will also make it quicker and easier to get a quote for landlords insurance. *Index linking protects you against underinsurance. At each annual renewal, your insurer will review and increase the building sum insured in accordance with an index linked to inflation. This ensures that you have sufficient insurance to cover the increasing rebuild costs. NB Although index linking will keep the insured sums up to date, the initial rebuild costs must be correct from the outset if you want to be certain that you have enough insurance cover.
