Do you use water companies insurance?


Likes # 0

With every water bill I receive from Anglian Water I get a letter imforming me that should I suffer a water leak on my property the cost of repairs could run into £1000s. These letters are immediately shredded as this is covered by my home insurance.

Just seeing this artical in the Telegraph Water Leaks made me wonder if any members of this forum have taken out these insurance policies with their water suppliers

Regarding my building's insurance claim, a couple of weeks ago, for a 'defective' underground drain pipe causing a blockage...I was unsuccessful because it (the cause of the blockage) came under a 'wear & tear' clause in the policy agreement, which was not covered for insurance purposes.

If the damage had been accidental then I would have been covered for that eventuality.

On the up side, I have now got an up-to-date building's insurance booklet on all of the rules about 'claiming'.

I have accepted the outcome and have become a bit more savvy regarding insurance policies.
