Why is building property insurance important?

Your home is usually the biggest investment you will make in your life. Whether you have a single-family house, an apartment block or a holiday home, as the owner you have to bear all the financial risks. That’s why it’s essential to have cover against potential damage, e.g. from a fire, storm or high water. Building insurance enables you to protect your building and any outbuildings for their reinstatement value.

Building property insurance covers risks not included in the compulsory building insurance of your particular canton. Example: Cantonal insurance covers only water damage due to flooding. So damage due to broken pipes or a leaky roof are excluded. By contrast, Helvetia building property insurance covers these financial risks too.
