Probate Pro Unoccupied Property Insurance

Probate Pro has been designed to help probate professionals quickly issue insurance for unoccupied property in Probate.

There is no need for upfront payment when arranging cover.  You will receive a statement on the first working day each month for payment.

Probate Pro is underwritten by certain underwriters at Lloyd’s and administered by SJL Insurance Services.  

You have two product options to choose from:

  • Probate Pro Monthly: Useful when there are a lack of funds to pay for the insurance.  Pay monthly cancel anytime, with no cancellation fees.  Premiums start at just £33.60 a month (including IPT)
  • Probate Pro Annual: if a policies cancels early, there are no cancellation fees and the estate would receive a pro-rata refund for any unused cover.

Both products include:

  • Buildings Insurance (either on a declared rebuild basis or if you don't know this on a blanket £750,000 sum insured). 
  • £2m property owners liability insurance
  • £10,000 of contents cover included in the price.
  • The option to extend the total contents cover up to £30,000
  • £10,000 Escape of Water cover if the water system isn't drained.  Full cover up to the building sums insured if the system is drained

The questions are designed to protect you:

  • Reduce likelihood of under insurance: If you don't know the property rebuild value you can choose a bedroom rated product with a total building sums insured of £750,000.  We can consider higher value property offline.
  • 30 day inspections:  Inspections are only required every 30 days and we do not insist on written inspection reports. The person inspecting the property does not need to be a professional, just someone with a key to the property.  They will need to take two pictures of the property (one inside and one of the front of the property) using a mobile device. In the event of a claim you will need to evidence that regular inspections have taken place
  • No questions on Security: We don't expect you to know the level of security on the property.  We just need to confirm that the property is in a good state of repair, is structurally sound, wind and watertight with no obvious faults and not derelict.  
  • Cover for non structural renovations: for projects up to £50,000 for no additional charge.

Landowners Liability Insurance

If someone accidentally injures themselves or damages their property on the land they could claim for damages against the estate. The claimant could be on the land with permission or trespassing. The land can also be insured in the name of the estate.

You will soon be able to purchase landowners liability insurance online in a couple of minutes.

Landowners Liability Insurance

Early Distribution Insurance

Most beneficiaries would like to receive their inheritance as soon as possible. With Early Distribution Insurance you can distribute the estate during the 6 month waiting period. The policy protects executors, personal representatives and beneficiaries if a claim is made by an unknown dependent. Peace of mind for all involved.

Early Distribution Insurance
Section 27 Indemnity Insurance

Section 27 Insurance

A section 27 notice only provides protection to the executors if an unknown creditor makes a claim against the estate. In the absence of insurance, this debt could be left to the beneficiaries to settle. Section 27 Insurance will respond if a claim from an unknown creditor is received after the estate is distributed. The insurance policy will cover any legal costs and award. This will give peace of mind to the beneficiaries, knowing if there is a claim, they have nothing further to pay.

Missing Will Insurance

If a newer will is found after the estate is distributed, it can lead to a costly legal process and redistribution of the estate. This may financially impact the beneficiaries who were the original recipients. Missing Will Insurance enables the estate to be distributed and protects any future liabilities of the executors, personal representatives and beneficiaries. Beneficiaries can relax safe in the knowledge that if another will is discovered, they won't need to repay any of their inheritance.

Missing Will Insurance
Missing Beneficiary Insurance

Missing Beneficiary Insurance

Allows the estate to be distributed without any future liability if a missing or unknown beneficiary comes forward to claim against the estate. It protects the liabilities of the executors, personal representatives and beneficiaries. The beneficiaries can relax safe in the knowledge that they won't need to repay any of their inheritance if another beneficiary comes forward.
