Can you insure a Garage?

Believe it or not, this is an extremely common question! Mostly, garages that are within the boundaries of the main property residence are insured automatically and included within the buildings sums insured specified. However there is an ever growing need for standalone garage insurance – what we mean here is, insurance for garages that are outside the boundaries of a home. This is mainly due to:

  1. Garages that are rented out to tenants
  2. Garages that are not listed on the same property deeds as the main residence

Garages that are rented out to tenants

Garages can be a superb investment opportunity. Once frowned upon as an investment, they are now extremely popular with a steady rental yield which will appeal to investors. The market value has also increased substantially in recent years, primarily due to a surge in their demand, driven by an increase in commuters requiring parking space at their place of work or the nearest train station. Many investors have cashed in on this supply gap, and have purchased garages and rented them out. So much so, that most garages in the London area can be up to 5 times more to buy than it would to build them.

What does Lock up Garage Insurance Include?

Insurance for such garages includes property owner’s liability up to £5,000,000 and Loss of Rent insurance. Due to the nature of the building & its occupancy (or lack of it), insurance for lock up garages can be difficult to find and when you do, cover is limited to the same level of cover as you would expect on an empty residential property.

Garages that are not listed on the same property deeds as the main residence need separate lock up garage insurance

This is a common issue for many home owners and requires that they take out insurance separately from their home insurance. This usually is a result of owning a flat or house on a terrace, and the garage may be some distance from the house itself. Cover again includes Public Liability up to £5,000,000 if required and cover for Fire, Lightning, Earthquake & Aircraft.
