Inheritance Data expand platform capabilities to include Vacant Property Insurance

When conducting the administration of an estate, the Executor or Personal Representative is under obligation to protect any physical assets within the estate, including all property.

Properties left empty once an individual has passed away can quickly become a problem, with traditional home insurance products often proving expensive and time consuming.

Via our partner, Southey & Co, we are pleased to now offer seamless cover for Vacant Property Insurance alongside our range of services, without the need for lengthy questionnaires or phone calls.

Vacant Property Insurance from Southey & Co has no minimum or maximum periods the property can be insured for, so whether you need insurance for a single day, a month or even years, we can meet your needs. And with a simple daily rate, no administration or cancellation fees, you will only pay for the time the insurance is required for.

Some benefits of Vacant Property Insurance include:

  • No property inspection requirements – Standard cover has no need for an inspection, giving you time to work out how to manage the property.
  • Easy and immediate arrangement – cover can be provided seamlessly once a search has been placed by answering a few simple questions.
  • No quoting process – for standard cases, there is a fixed fee charge for the time that you require cover. Bespoke quotes can also be provided for more complex needs.
  • No commitment – no administration or cancellation fees with flexibility, meaning cover can be in place for as long as required with nationwide coverage.

Inheritance Data continue to offer practical solutions that solve problems for private client teams across the UK to smooth the process of estate administration and reduce risk.

This is why we continue to enhance our platform with services our clients want, Daniel Cane, Operations Director of Inheritance Data said:

“We are thrilled to be able to partner with Southey & Co to offer Vacant Property Insurance at the click of a button, it follows what has been an exciting summer with the launch of our Digital Asset Search which has already added huge value to our clients. We constantly strive to deliver the best possible products and service to offer the private client industry the technology it deserves”.
