Reminder on cover for businesses or premises that are unoccupied due to Local, Regional or National Covid regulations.

The UK Government announced a new lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December that will replace the current pattern of local and regional regulations. At the same time Scotland is in the process of introducing a regionalised approach.

These various regulations mean that a variety of non-essential businesses (such as retailers or leisure businesses) may be required to close or to further extend their current closure causing a short-term substantial increase in empty buildings.

Full details of our stance on unoccupied buildings can be found on our AXA Coronavirus Hub and here:

We also include some reminders of the key steps to take to manage an unoccupied building.

If you have any further questions please contact your local AXA representative who will be happy to help.
