Tesco Subsidence Insurance

Subsidence occurs when the ground that supports the foundations of your house begins to sink, due to an increase or decrease in the amount of water. Many insurance companies offer cover for subsidence damage as part of their buildings insurance policy.

Tesco has subsidence insurance as one of the events that is covered by its building insurance policy, so it is not possible to get a stand alone subsidence insurance quote.

Tesco’s subsidence insurance comes with a list of conditions for when claims can and can not be made:


  • Like most insurers Tesco will not extend cover to you if you have made a claim for subsidence in the last year
  • Subsidence will only be covered in a buildings insurance policy if past instances have been clearly noted and written on a property survey

It may be enough to just pass your postcode on to Tesco if you are not sure if the property you want to insure has had previous instances of subsidence. In some cases Tesco will be able to tell if your property has a subsidence history from the post code.

If you are considering purchasing a buildings cover policy from Tesco, subsidence insurance could be a smart addition to the policy, as what starts off as a few cracks I the wall could quickly escalate into an expensive problem.
