Selling your home

Buildmark covers the home so it is passed to each owner during the life of the policy

Passing on your cover

Buildmark is intended to benefit every owner of the home during the lifespan of the policy. So, if you sell the home and the Buildmark policy has not expired, the new owner gets the benefit of the remaining cover (although note that the limits of the policy may already have been partly or fully used up by claims from you and/or earlier owners).

Transferring the policy

Your conveyancer may request the Buildmark documents (typically the insurance certificate and policy booklet) from you at the start of the conveyancing process and pass these on to your buyers' solicitor on your behalf. We also recommend that the new owner of the home contact us on 0344 633 1000 and ask for 'Customer Services' or fill out the form below after they’ve completed their purchase to provide us with their details.

Alternatively, your buyers’ conveyancer may use our online conveyancing portal to let us know about a purchase or change of ownership.
