Claims Against St. Leger Homes
The structure of your home – such as foundations, external walls
and roof – is the responsibility of St. Leger Homes . If the
structure of your home is damaged or destroyed by fire, for
instance, this is our responsibility. However, damage to the
contents of the home are your responsibility and need to be covered
by Home Contents Insurance.
You may make an insurance claims against us for any damage, loss
or injury for which we are responsible. For example, if one of our
maintenance staff accidentally burst a pipe in your home, resulting
in damage to your furniture, you would have legitimate cause to
make a claim against us.
If however, tiles were blown off your roof in a storm and, as a
result of this damage was caused to a carpet in your home, this
might not be our fault.
Every claim against us is properly investigated and treated on
its merits. We will never unfairly reject a claim. To make a claim
you have to fill in an insurance claim form, which is
available for you to download below.
