Escape of Water Insurance

Escape of water is one of the most common types of claim there is on a buildings insurance policy, including Home Insurance, Block of flats Insurance and Landlords Insurance. It is therefore important that you have this cover under your current buildings policy.

It can be a horrible experience & all of your floors, walls & ceilings take the brunt of it! The most common cause is burst pipes from cold weather & of course leaks from the bath or bathroom causing damage to the room below. Do not Panic! If you are reading this, hopefully you will have taken the most important step – turn the water off!

If you are reading this and have no need to make a claim, why not act before disaster strikes with escape of water:

  • CHECK where your Stopcock is
  • CHECK the insulation of the pipes and tank in the roof
  • CHECK if you boiler is due a service

This will minimise your chances of having to make an escape water claim!

Property Insurance Centre have partnered with Aspray to provide a First Class Claims service, should your property become victim to water escape and the resultant damage. If you need Escape of Water help, we will ensure a Claim Handler will visit your property with 24 hours (or a time of your choosing) and take over the whole claims process for you, and ensuring you get a fair settlement!
