What is Reinstatement Cost?
The Reinstatement Cost (also known as rebuild cost or building sum insured) of your home, is the amount it would cost to completely rebuild the property from scratch if it were totally destroyed, by a fire for example.
It is required for building insurance applications and is the amount of money for which your home is insured in case of total loss. It includes, costs of clearing the site, materials, labour and professional fees. It is not the same as the value of your home.
Reinstatement costs are for an accurate reconstruction of your property whereas market value is simply what the property is worth as a whole finished product.
