Business buildings insurance is exactly what it sounds like – cover for the building you run your business from. It can cover you if your business premises is damaged or destroyed, paying out for repairs and rebuild costs.
A large fire broke out at a policyholder’s business premises, caused by an electrical fault. The property was significantly damaged throughout and needed extensive repairs, which were covered by their policy.
The customer’s stock and contents were also damaged, but those are not covered under business buildings insurance and require separate cover.
