Winter Business Update

Having reflected on the successes and challenges of 2021, we’re looking forward to a year of new opportunities. As always, we’ll be on hand to help throughout the year if you need us. Read on for our latest updates:

Changes to Admin Fees

From 1st February 2022, there has been a change to the admin fees for our property insurance products.

  • Fees are applied at £20 for premiums of £500 or lower and £30 for premiums of £500.01 or higher
  • Fees are applied per property
  • Fees are capped at max £300 per policy

Excess Changes

We have increased the escape of water excess to a minimum of £300 for our Landlord Insurance, Unoccupied Property Insurance, and UK Holiday Home Insurance products. This is to bring the excess in line with the market. All other excesses for these product have stayed the same.

Resetting Your Password for Our Property Owners Quote Engine

If you have yet to migrate to our new Property Owners quote engine, we would like to remind you to reset your password to do so. Once this is done, the new quote engine will be available at login. Previously, we discovered the password reset email was going into many brokers’ spam/junk boxes. We have made a change our end to try and avoid this, but please do continue to check your spam/junk, just in case.

Obtaining a PDF Quote on Our Property Owners Quote Form

We have recently been asked about how to process a PDF for quotes on our new Property Owners quote engine. This can be done on the final page of the quote form by clicking the ‘quote as PDF’ button beneath the premium. You can watch our video walkthrough of the Property Owners quote engine to see an example:
