When a building becomes unoccupied there is an increased risk of incidents occurring and damage going undiscovered through for example breaches in security, theft, arson, flooding (e.e. burst pipes) etc. As a result the Insurance Office is required to notify the Insurer of all property unoccupied for a period of 30 days or more. In addition the University's property insurance policy includes a clause detailing requirements that must be met in the event that a property is unoccupied.
Cover will not operate in the event of an incident if notification of the unoccupied building is not provided to the Insurance Office or if any of the requirements are not met.
