Buildings valuation service

Be confident you have the cover you need

Our experience shows that many individuals and organisations have incorrect buildings sums insured – meaning they are either under or over-insured. Being under-insured means that you could find that you’re not fully covered if you need to make a claim. And if you’re over-insured, you could be paying more than you need to for your insurance.

A buildings valuation1 from our experts, provided at no additional cost, helps you avoid either of these scenarios.

Let our experts help

We have an in-house team of specialist surveyors who can provide you with a buildings valuation and Risk Management survey1 at no additional cost to ensure you are not over or under-insured. It’s a service that’s increasingly rare among insurers, but we believe it’s an essential part of delivering the insurance you expect and deserve.

Once we’ve completed your buildings valuation, we’ll confirm the amount to you in a written report. If you chose to insure your buildings on the basis of our valuation, you can be confident that should you ever need to make a claim on the Buildings section of your policy, you won’t be penalised for underinsurance. Please note that the liability of the company however is always limited to the sum insured.

Your sum insured with Ecclesiastical will also be index-linked using the most appropriate index for your building, meaning that any fluctuations in the cost of materials and resources required to reinstate your property are tracked. If the building is a heritage property, there are likely to be specialist considerations and your building may be placed on the Ecclesiastical Heritage Index which has been specially calculated by BCIS for our heritage customers. 

The index will also further help to ensure you are fully covered if you need to make a claim
