Pipes That Are External To Your Building
A lot of people don’t realise that usually your building insurance doesn’t cover pipes that lead from the building to the perimeter of your plot.
There are companies out there that will try to entice you into buying insurance.
Before making a decision, explore how much it would cost if work had to be done on these pipes by speaking to an expert. Then it is a matter of weighing up the risk!
Insurance can be just a few pounds a month and may be worth it for your peace of mind.
Another thing to consider is the age of your property, as with increased age, there are likely to be more problems.
You can also access legislation on your local government’s and water company’s websites to find out exactly what they are responsible for.
The price is reasonable for insuring the pipes that are underground and lead from a building, so you may want to go ahead and do it so that you are as protected as well as you can be.
