New Build Home Insurance
Once you have your home, you may want to insure the building and the contents. Even if you have a new build, you will need new build insurance because the NHBC warranty does not cover you for fire or flood for example.
Building insurance will insure you to rebuild your house if it’s destroyed. When you are thinking about the sum insured, remember that the market value of your home does not reflect the cost to rebuild it. The actual rebuild value should be on the survey you had done before you bought the property, or if you ask for buildings insurance from comparethemarket.com it will tell you the suggested rebuild value.
Buildings insurance for your new build will cover the structure; the walls, roof, windows and all the fixtures and fittings like the kitchen and the bathroom. The contents are all the things you have in your home that you can move around like the furniture, carpets and personal items like computers and cameras.
