Property Maintenance Policy
Your home is probably your biggest single financial investment so you should make sure that your dream does not turn into a nightmare by incurring ever increasing maintenance costs. To safeguard your asset and provide peace of mind, the 5-star Property Maintenance Policy can be tailored to your needs and provide substantial savings on buildings maintenance.
Why a 5-star Property Maintenance Policy
5 Star Property Maintenance are part of the G&A Group. We are approved by the Confederation of Roofing Contractors, Checkatrade and Trading Standards.
When a dream home is purchased, the ensuing disastrous and ruinous events are not deliberate or desired. We know, for example, that a dislodged roof slate may well let in the rain. As a result the timber decays. The plaster disintegrates encouraging unsightly fungal growth and the nightmare is only just beginning. Blocked gutters will most likely overflow leading to rotten fascia boards, window sills and damp patches on walls. Moss, leaves and twigs may also be forced into the underground pipework causing costly blockages.
Home Buildings Insurance Policy.
The 5 Star Property Maintenance Policy works alongside your existing buildings insurance policy and is not a substitute
Almost all building insurance companies issue policies that contain a paragraph similar to:
Please note that before a claim is accepted under the policy, damage must result from one of the causes listed – damage resulting from deterioration or poor maintenance is not covered”.
This could invalidate your building insurance claim. Proof of Property “Up-keep” – Your 5 Star Property Maintenance Policy provides you with proof of property “up-keep” and prevents any Buildings Insurance claim being compromised through damage resulting from deterioration or poor maintenance.
Emergency Repairs and Insurance Work.
Your 5 Star Property Maintenance Policy while bridging the gap in your building insurance is at the same time benefitting you, our policyholder.
With our policy, a simple phone call to our 24 hour Emergency Hotline will ensure one or more of our approved professional tradesmen starting work immediately. We can provide the required estimates and invoices in respect of the work done.

A 5 Star Property Maintenance policy is unlike any insurance you have seen before. You may have insured property, car etc against damage and loss. You can only claim in the event of loss or damage. Our maintenance policy is different in so far as you do not need to suffer a loss or damage in order to benefit from your maintenance policy. Your maintenance costs will be kept to a minimum and the quality of workmanship and materials assured.
Other items can be added to your maintenance plan such as fence maintenance, pruning hedges and trees, de-mossing and cleaning patios or roofs, plumbing and painting – the choice is yours.
