We have to check the eligibility of the property before setting up any insurance policy. One of the questions we ask is: ‘What type of property is it?’ We expect a very simple answer, such as: house, flat, bungalow, park home, etc. We very rarely get the simple answer.
‘It’s in the middle.’
‘It’s brick built.’
‘It’s three bedroom.’
‘It’s on it’s own.’
‘It’s semi-detached, brick built, four bedrooms, with a pointed roof, built in 1965. And it has a converted loft.’
‘I live here with my wife and kids.’
‘It’s next door to number five.’
‘Oh, you know. It’s a normal home.’
