Leak Insurance Claim, also known as ‘Escape of Water’, is when Water has Leaked from Somewhere Inside your Property and Caused Damage.
Usually, your policy will cover these events, but water coming from something like an overflowing bath or drilled-through pipework may only be covered if you have accidental damage insurance.

Claims that involve escape of water can be challenging. You may not know where the leak originates from or even its cause. Most insurance policies provide cover for ‘Trace and Access’ which covers the costs involved in finding and uncovering leaking or burst pipes, as well as repairing the damage caused by accessing these pipes. Property Claim Assist only recommend the most experienced leak detection specialists to carry out these works.
Once the cause for any escape of water has been located, all affected areas of the building will require professional drying and certification before the water damage is repaired and your property is restored. Property Claim Assist only recommend technicians qualified by the British Damage Management Association (BDMA), to deal with the drying aspect of your property, giving you total peace of mind that the works are being carried out professionally, thoroughly and within the guidelines.
