The standard excess amount payable on our Home policy is £100 on most Buildings & Contents claims. For claims relating to escape of water, it’s £250, and for claims for subsidence/heave/landslip it’s £1,000. Please refer to your policy wording for the total excess amount on your policy.
You can also choose to have a voluntary excess in addition to the compulsory excess under the policy. A higher total excess value makes the insurance premium lower, however, in the event of a claim, you will pay the total excess amount, which is the total value of the compulsory excess and any voluntary excess you have selected.
