Conversion Insurance


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

A conversion project is a major undertaking which involves work on a structure which might be in a very poor condition. Our conversion insurance has been designed to take this into consideration. From derelict barn conversion insurance to construction cover for a disused chapel conversion- 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. Site, 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 that everyone is adequately protected. This is why our conversion insurance policies 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 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. If you use the proper contracts, there will be a better chance 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 chance of success (terms and conditions apply).

By correctly using our contract templates, you will have the necessary proof of the basis of the contract which will hopefully enable a swift conclusion of 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 don’t leave it to chance.


Need a Structural Warranty?

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