Unocccupied Property Alert

If you have a property that will be unoccupied for more than 30 days, standard home insurance may not cover you. Specialist insurers expect owners to comply with mandatory requirements outlined in their policy. This generally includes a stipulation that an empty property must be checked every 7 or 14 days.

An empty property may be awaiting sale, probate or held in trust. It may be a holiday home or second home. It may be a main residence left unattended for several months due to holidays taken or work commitments. Port of Call can execute thorough checks as regularly as you wish, or as often as your insurance company requires to ensure that everything is secure.
