Conversion Insurance

Barn or other Agricultural Buildings, Commercial, Flats and Religious Buildings


A conversion project is a major undertaking which involves works on a structure which might be in a very poor condition. Our conversion insurance has been designed to take this into consideration so whether it's derelict barn conversion insurance you need or a conversion project for a disused chapel – we can help.


Get the Right Cover In Place

Conversion Site Insurance covers the structure which is being converted as well as the new conversion works and materials right up to the point the project is completed. Plant, tools and equipment or a residential caravan can also be covered if required.

Accidents Do Happen...

People working on site, whether it be family or friends or third-party contractors, do get

injured and that is an unfortunate fact. It is very important everyone is adequately protected. This is why we include public liability and employers’ liability cover as standard.


Legal Expenses Insurance Cover

Conversion projects can be complex affairs due to the diversity of trades working on site and a variety of risks – which can range from unforeseen issues to an error or omission. In conjunction with ContractStore, we offer essential, easy-to-use contracts at really affordable prices. They are backed up with legal expenses cover, that will provide you with the legal advice you need and if appropriate, enable you to pursue a contractual dispute, and if you use the proper contracts, there will be a better prospect of success.


We have known people to lose large amounts of money because they failed to use properly written contracts.  When it comes to trying to make claims without this it is very difficult as the ‘burden of proof’ is on you. With a contract, there is little escape. That is why with our contract package we give you unlimited use of the contract wordings.


Self-Build Zone backs this up with the addition of legal expenses cover, which is provided as standard with all of our Site Insurance products (excluding developers insurance).


If a dispute arises, the legal team will provide you with essential legal advice to enable you to pursue a contractual dispute claim where there is a good prospect of success (terms and conditions apply).


By correctly using our contract templates you will have the necessary proof of the basis of the contract and hopefully enable a swift conclusion to any dispute.


Perhaps Your Contractor Is Insured?

Most contractors only have public liability cover which is not sufficient as no-one is taking full responsibility for the existing structure or the works in progress. A seriously fire-damaged property, whether caused accidentally or by vandalism, is a financial and emotional loss that does not bear thinking about so do not leave it to chance.


Build-Zone 10 Year Structural Warranty

A Build-Zone 10-Year Structural Warranty is one of the best ways to protect your conversion against the effect that a major structural defect could have. Should you wish to sell the property at some point in the future, a Build-Zone      10-Year Structural Warranty will give your purchaser the peace of mind that the building was completed professionally and that it is covered by a lender approved warranty.
