The Differences Between Building Insurance and Household Insurance

It’s a common misconception that household and building insurance are the same thing. Although you’d be excused for assuming this, it’s not advisable to skip getting a building combined insurance policy!

If you feel like you need to learn the differences between building and household insurance policies, look no further than below!

Building Insurance from Compendium:

  • It covers a building that is used mainly for business or residential purposes.
  • It involves the physical structure of a business or residential property.
  • It encompasses insurance against unexpected element-related events such as fires and floods that cause damage to your property.
  • It’s for you if you need to be covered against any theft experienced as a result of forced entry to your premises.
  • If you require insurance against potential loss of rental income experienced through damages to your property that may render it uninhabitable.

A Compendium Home Insurance policy:

  • Looks out for your valuable home contents.
  • Covers your possessions in the event of losses or damages as a result of theft, fires, floods, explosions, lightning strikes, wind, hail, storms, and even earthquakes!
  • It could extend to essential outdoor items such as garden furniture.
  • Your monthly premium could include accidental death, medical costs and veterinary and trauma counselling.
  • It covers damages or losses that are the direct result of the malicious behaviour of persons.
  • With today’s crime statistics on the rise, it makes sense to have this policy to safeguard yourself against the loss of your valued possessions.
  • This policy is fully customisable, and additional cover extensions and special endorsements are available.
