Building or renovating your own home is the single biggest investment in your life. To enter a project without sufficient insurance is madness – but many people do, and often unwittingly – did you know, for instance, that your existing policy may not cover any works undertaken as part of a renovation or extension project?

This risks your entire investment and leaves homeowners in desperate situations. To help homebuilders and renovators find it easier to secure peace of mind, Homebuilding & Renovating has partnered with leading insurance specialist Self Build Zone to provide bespoke solutions at market-leading rates for its readers.

How Much Does it Cost?

Prices will vary, but expect to pay between 0.5 and 1 per cent of the overall build cost. A self build policy doesn’t cover personal possessions, but can be converted to a household policy upon project completion.
