Looking for an insurer who will insure our buildings and contents for more than 60 days at a time and with the home being placed in a Trust. Does any member know for certain an insurance company who will provide cover for the above.
Thanks in advance,
Philip

Since 2015 and in that time I have learnt an awful lot from this site
Don't think the Trust will make any difference to insurance

Well if you knew that maybe you should have posted more details about the problem.

Instead of slapping down the first responder.



You may not get many more offers of help.
Suggest you read my post again and not add a different interpretation to that which was posted. I didn't say it was a problem. I did not slap you down, I just corrected the error in your reply which you have wrongly overreacted to. No more details were required in my post as it was a simple straight forward question asked of those who had first hand knowledge to my request for information. Clearly you do not, so am a bit of a loss as why you replied in the first place.

Can I ask a question:oops:
What’s getting insurance for 60 days got to do with your house in trust?
We’re going to put ours in trust due to this rediculous unfair self funding business so I’m just interested that’s all

Not long enough!
Having read up, it looks like government can go back years, and if they think you've done it to avoid care costs, they can recover the funds from you.

My existing insurance provider will no longer provide buildings Insurance cover once we sign the Trust documents. Many insurance providers only provide 60 days cover when the house is unoccupied. Were looking for insurance cover to cover the house after it's put in a trust and to maintain cover for more than 60 days when we overwinter outside of the UK. If your looking to get cover for more than 60 days you can with Aviva.

I raised this point with our solicitor, he said putting the house in a 'Deed of Trust' will provide us with the best protection currently available. There are different levels of protection within the trust and we are going to be in the 'Premier league' so to speak. To date, there has not been a breach of this protection made by the local authority within our county/town and we do not have to wait 7 years to obtain full protection, it will be in place once the home is in the trust and Registered. Future legislation may result in this protection becoming meaningless and we are aware the government is looking again at social care and they will introduce new/updated legislation in due course. We may be on a hiding to nothing but are doing what we can to prevent the home from being forcibly sold to pay for megga care home fees should one of us pass on and the other having tom go into a care home at a later date. If I pop my cloggs, Mena becomes the sole survivor in the home and if she has to go into care they can go after a proportion of the tiny savings she will have but will not be able to sell the home.

Brilliant thanks
Yes as I understand it at the moment they can only go back 7 years for deprecation of assets.
However I have heard from another source that they are looking at stopping this trust thing but it’s not in place at the moment so hurry !

Still don’t understand insurance part wether it’s in trust or no

Sue, I just remembered part of the long conversation we had with our solicitor when discussing this arrangement. He said to us, in setting this up we will be very careful to show and demonstrate that the reason you are putting the house in this trust is not to avoid paying care costs should the remaining partner go into a care home and then we discussed further and agreed several other reasons, (mostly family related, some not) why we were putting the home in a trust. This gave us additional protection and demonstrated the trust was not about trying to avoid the home being forcibly sold to pay for care costs.

Neither do I but to date it seems to be an issue with a number of insurance companies and when combined with our need for more than 60 days cover have been turned down by a number of big insurance companies. Namely, Aviva. Direct Line and Churchill. I'm sure we will get the cover we need and thought there must be some Funster members who have done this and so asked the question. Looks like I will be making more enquiries come Monday.

The government have a habit of moving the goal posts and taking what they want.
I was told years ago, you're better off having nothing.
I would agree with 'leaving nothing' rather than 'having nothing', although we do have those in our society who have nothing and seem to get by and some of them claiming to have a good quality of life. However, I don't believe that for a second !

Hi PhilandMena

Did you solve your buildings and contents cover for more than 60 days? We too are trying to get the same cover for 90days, we were with The AA but they say not able to insure us in the future.

Yes, we did. Took a bit of doing but we eventually found an insurance broker who was able to find us a company. What was surprising was the ignorance of initial staff contact when trying to obtain cover. The majority of people on the other end of the phone had never heard of a Deed of trust and the remainder did not understand how it worked and almost all had to refer to other staff and I suspect many of them simply did not get it. I discussed with our solicitor and he did say that as our daughters were named as beneficiaries in the trust it might be easier for the insurance companies if they insured the house in their name ?. If your not putting your house in a trust and just looking for 90 days plus, talk to Aviva, they will do it.
