it's probably wise to seek specialist buildings and contents insurance if you are planning to leave a property unoccupied for any length of time. This is where unoccupied home insurance comes in handy.
You don't have to insure an empty house for the usual 12 months required by a normal policy. Most firms allow you to arrange cover for three, six, nine or 12 months, with the option to extend if necessary. So, you might take out a three-month policy to cover your property while it is up for sale. But if the sale takes longer than expected, you could simply extend the policy as required.
There's no point in paying over the odds for unoccupied home insurance for an empty home - and it's quick and easy to compare cheap quotes with sosmartmoney's free, independent service. You can check out all the different policies, too, to make sure you get the right cover at the right price.
