Un-Occupied Buildings

Specialised Property Team

Over 55% of malicious fires are started at un-occupied or otherwise vacant properties

Vacant / Un-Occupied Buildings

We are Experts in covering vacant / un-occupied property.

  • Are you acting as an Executor or have the Power of Attorney and need a property covered?
  • Is Long Term vacant cover required?
  • Is the property temporarily un-occupied?
  • Are you looking after a newly built completed house?
  • Is the property for sale?

We have specific 12 month vacant property policies for residential, mixed use or commercial (single or multi-unit) properties including completed new builds.


The following is a shortlist of types of risks we quote for
  • For Sale / To Let
    * Owner in a Nursing Home
  • In Probate / Executor
    * Death of the Owner / Occupier
  • Between Tenants
    * Tenant moving out
  • Long Term Vacant
    * Owner moving abroad
  • Under Renovation
    * Newly completed house

Vacant / un-occupied buildings bring extra risk to the owner. Transfer that risk now to a Property Insurer.

We have particular expertise in such properties and provide the necessary cover the market is willing to provide via A-Rated (financially secure) fully regulated Insurers whom you can trust.

The type of COVER we can provide;
  • Fire, Lightning, Aircraft & Explosion cover in respect of Buildings (& Contents where required)


  • * Storm, Flood & Theft cover (where requested)


      • Public / Property Owners’ Liability cover limit of €6,500,000


      • Fire Brigade Charges
