Listed Building Insurance

Protecting the heritage of your home

Grade 1 Listed Building Insurance

Do you own a Grade 1 listed home? Highworth Insurance can provide Grade 1 listed building insurance with minimal fuss and at realistic prices.

Why do you need specialist Grade 1 listed building insurance?

Put simply the cost and time taken to repair a Grade 1 listed building is greater than that of a standard property. Examples of why this is include:

  • Sufficient cover required to repair and replace non-standard materials
  • Additional labour costs for skilled craftsmen
  • Timescales are longer due to structural work or changes being subject to rigorous permissions and consents.

Your policy should also be able to cover your costs should you have to vacate the property. For these reasons it is important to speak to a specialist insurer who can provide explicit cover for your Grade 1 listed property.

Is specialist contents cover required for Grade 1 listed buildings?

Yes. For the following reasons:

  • Modern security measures such as double glazing and window locks are simply not applicable on Grade 1 listed buildings
  • Because of this standard insurers can be reluctant to insure contents, especially if your possessions are of considerable value, for example jewellery.

A high value policy can often be the solution in cases like this, especially if you require protection for collections such as art, antiques or fine wines.
