Blocks of flats and apartments

Blocks of flats and apartments come in all shapes and sizes of standard and non-standard construction, including listed buildings. No block is too small, too large, or too complicated for us to consider. We have full underwriting authority from our insurers, including Aviva, Zurich, AXA XL Insurance, Covea, NIG and LV, which means unlike many brokers we are empowered to make underwriting decisions. We issue your insurance documents and handle your claims to provide a fast, efficient and seamless service.
