Terrorism

Why blocks of flats and apartments also need insurance cover for acts of terrorism.

Standard property insurance cover on a block does not automatically include damage by terrorists and has to be requested. You may find that terrorism cover is a requirement of your lease or mortgage provider. The court appeal in the “Qdime case*” (July 2014) upheld that if an insurance clause in your lease includes a requirement to insure against explosion, then this should include terrorism. The ruling made clear that this cover is a requirement of most leases. While the likelihood of a terrorist incident may seem small, uninsured losses could be massive and it may not be worth the risk.
