If my client lives in a rented flat, can they insure their Contents with Confidas?
Yes, our home policies will cover this provided that your client owns all the Contents of the flat. i.e. it is not a furnished rental property.
Can my client insure Contents if they sub-let their house?
Buildings and Contents cover are only available if the property is occupied solely by the policyholder and family although Confidas can provide cover for weekend and holiday homes in addition to the main residence.
My client is the freeholder of a house converted into several flats. Can Confidas provide cover for the whole building?
No, this would requite a block “Property Owners” insurance. Unfortunately, Confidas cannot currently provide this type of policy.
Can Confidas offer cover in Northern Ireland?
Yes we can.
Do Confidas note a mortgage lender on the policy documents?
Yes, our Quote and Buy system allows you to enter the mortgage lender’s details on the Summary of Details page, which is reached after you have entered the payment details. Confidas will then issue a letter to the lender confirming cover is in place.
Can my client choose the policy excess?
