Running the risk of invalidated insurance

One of our recent projects was a survey on a Grade II listed thatched cottage, and it threw up an interesting find as we discovered lots of wires and several battery-operated smoke detectors throughout the roof space.

Concerned, we checked the vendor’s insurance policy and found that it stipulated that all smoke detectors had to be mains powered and linked, so the vendor’s policy would potentially have been invalid had a fire broken out in the loft area. We strongly recommend that all smoke detectors should be mains powered and linked, and that any loose wires should be placed in steel conduits to reduce the chance of rodents biting through the cables. Different insurers have different criteria, so if you have a thatched property please do read your policy documents carefully.

Potential fire hazards such as these are just one of the many items checked during a building survey carried out by Anglian Home Surveyors, a leading building surveyor in Cambridge. To book a full residential survey, please call Raphael Stipic at Anglian Home Surveyors on 01223 661439 or complete our enquiry form.
