With such wide-ranging cover available, it is essential that all elements that make up ‘buildings’ as defined in the policy are allowed for and included in the valuation. These include dwellings, garages, day rooms, common parts and lifts. The insurance policy may also allow for external items such as car parks, lamp standards, hedges, walls and fences.

Allowance also needs to be included for increases in cost related to compliance with current building legislation. In addition, policies should be index-linked to protect against inflation.
