Halifax Home Insurance and Halifax Home Insurance Ultimate are underwritten by Lloyds Bank General Insurance Limited.

Our buildings insurance protects your private residence and any structures attached to it against the usual risks, such as fire, flood and storm damage, subsidence and vandalism.

You also get a range of reassuring benefits as standard, including:

  • Alternative accommodation - for your family and domestic pets if you can’t live in your home because of an insured event.
  • Replacement of Sets Cover - following a successful claim, we’ll replace the undamaged items of a matching set if a reasonable match can’t be found.
  • Accidental damage to underground services - such as underground pipes or drains belonging to you.
  • Property Owners’ Liability - in case of claims made against you by visitors who get injured following an accident at your home.

Our buildings insurance also covers your roof and any permanent fixtures in your home, such as plumbing, wiring and kitchen / bathroom fittings. It also protects a wide range of things within the boundary of your home, including your garden walls, gates, fences, paths, driveways, patios, fixed solar panels and hot tubs.
