As always, there are terms & conditions – for more details contact Clair Wellard and the team on 0330 331 0758, or email household@graniteunderwriting.co.uk.

Our landlord policies also cover:

  • Previous insurance policy voided, cancelled, refused or declined.
  • Adverse claims history
  • Property subsidence (movement or ‘underpinned’)
  • Criminal convictions or poor credit history – CCJs & bankruptcy
  • Flood areas
  • Non-standard construction

Home Insurance – New Host Cover Extension

In response to the needs of customers in the sharing economy, Granite Underwriting Home policies now have an optional extension: for a small additional charge, the annual policy can be extended to include hosting cover. This is useful for the customer who lives in the property and rents out a room in their home on AirBnB, or a parking space on their driveway. Our home insurance policy can now be extended to cover cases such as these, and continues to include Home Emergency cover as standard. As always there are terms and conditions – for more details please contact Clair Wellard and the team.
