Listed buildings insurance in Northern Ireland
The process of formally listing buildings of special architectural or historic interest began somewhat later than in the rest of the UK, with the first listings in the Province made by the Planning (Northern Ireland) Order of 1972.
The listing of architecturally and historically important buildings in Northern Ireland is performed by the Historic Environment Division of the Department for Communities on behalf of the Northern Ireland Executive.
Why do you need specialist listed buildings insurance in Northern Ireland?
The need for specialist listed building insurance is already suggested by the fact that the designation of buildings of special architectural or historic interest is conducted purely in the context of Norther Ireland’s planning laws and regulations.
These are different to those which hold sway in the rest of the UK – and illustrated not least by the particular categories of designation employed in Norther Ireland:
Grade A buildings, for example, are those which have the greatest architectural and historic importance to Northern Ireland and which have been little altered since they were first built;
Grade B+ designation is for buildings that have exceptional exterior or interior features, or reflect environmental qualities above and beyond those demonstrated by Grade B1 listed buildings;
Grade B1 is reserved for buildings which are good examples of a particular style or period of architecture and which may have been altered to some degree but which continue to have interior features of exceptional interest or quality; and
Grade B2 for all other buildings of historic or architectural significance, but which retain only a few of their original attributes after some degree of alteration.
Listed building insurance for your home in Northern Ireland
Insurance for listed buildings in Northern Ireland needs to take into account these locally specific designations and the planning environment which constrains and limits the ability to alter, repair or reinstate a listed building which you may own as your home.
Where listed building insurance is already a niche product, listed building insurance for your home in Northern Ireland is a still more specialist product reflecting the particular, local planning constraints and demands of the Province.
These are the constraints and restrictions likely to impact on the scale and nature of any claims you may need to make following loss or damage to your listed property and, so, specialist insurance needs to reflect the likely extent and cost of any repairs or reinstatement.
