Our insurance products and services
The relationships we have forged with insurers enables us to find innovative and creative solutions.
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, XL Catlin, 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.
Wide range of covers
Working with our panel of well-known insurers and in association with carefully selected specialists we offer a wide range of additional products and services shaped around your needs, from directors and officers cover and professional indemnity to insurance valuations and fire risk assessments among many others.
Deacon also offers a range of services to help you maintain and manage your property, from building insurance valuations, fire risk and health and safety assessments, to asbestos management surveys.
