Period properties are works of art. Yet many property owners, brokers and insurance companies are unaware of the complexities involved in insuring them properly.

In fact, the consequences of knowingly under-insuring a Grade 1 period property could involve legal action.

As well as the extra peace of mind, this could save you money both on premiums and on claims settlement.
