The study revealed an average reduction of 16% of the sum of the rebuilding cost from a national average of €248,000 to €208,000, reflecting a considerable drop in the cost of rebuilding a property over the past three years. Contents also dropped to an average of €32,000 in light of fierce retail competition coupled with reduced consumer demand.
What is most interesting about the study is that policy holders did not realise that it was their responsibility, and not that of their insurer, to reassess their insured building sum. Indeed, Irish people are becoming more proactive when it comes to going through the level of cover on offer to make sure they are getting the best deal possible.
