Providing buildings insurance for leasehold property and blocks since 1989

For more than 28 years Deacon has specialised in providing insurance for people managing and living in blocks of flats, whether it’s for an individual block or large portfolio.

Our panel of well-known insurers trusts us to insure more than £14* billion pounds worth of property across the UK, ranging from just two flats in a conversion to more than 200 in a purpose built block – and every type of block in between. We insure property of standard and non-standard construction, as well as listed buildings.

It takes specialist knowledge and experience to navigate the often complex property insurance market to find an appropriate level of cover at a competitive price.

We employ more than 50 talented individuals who work with our panel of insurers, many household names, to find your clients the right level of cover at a sensible price.

We insure property of standard and non-standard construction, as well as listed buildings. It is very rare for us to be presented with a property we cannot quote on.

And should the worst happen, our in-house claims team will manage the claim, supporting you and your clients step-by-step through the claims process.

Give your customers more confidence

Our current clients have told us that our ability to provide competitive quotes from a wide panel of insurers is one of the key reasons they like working with us. We recognise that confidence is also a key driver for agents that are managing insurance portfolios. If you have any concerns that dealing with one insurer or broker may limit your access to competitive premiums, consider this.
Deacon works with a wide range of well-known insurers and the dedication of our experienced team means we are always looking for the ‘value’ for your clients.

Do less admin!

We believe that a broker shouldn’t just be there to collect premiums once a year and as a Deacon client, we’ll appoint a friendly, knowledgeable single point of contact to work with you, get to know your business and how you prefer to work. We think you’ll like the consistency Deacon provides too. All of our team are happy to provide you with their direct-dial telephone numbers and direct emails, there are no call centres here!

Profit, value and quality

Deacon believes in ‘Value for Money’ and has the experience to negotiate competitive commission rates, premiums and levels of cover that match your clients’ needs. Crucially, we understand that our levels of cover and service reflect on your business, so we aim to achieve the highest levels possible.

Your way of working, not ours

We want you to choose Deacon for your long-term interests, not just because we can give you a better rate on one or two quotes. We can shop around for you, obtain comparative quotes, organise common renewal dates, give advice on unusual or challenging properties, identify potential problems and provide risk management services, all underpinned by a panel of well-known insurers and a wide range of products.

Deacon delivers real value in the services we provide to you and your customers, which may be one of the reasons why 95% of agents renew policies with Deacon every year. (1 Jan 2017 – 31 Dec 2017)
