How we started
Schofields Ltd is a name that is trusted by both public and fellow professionals alike. We have been instrumental in arranging cover for niche areas of business since 1984, primarily insurance for holiday homes and let property. We have negotiated wide delegated authorities to underwrite such holiday properties on behalf of certain Lloyd's Syndicates.
The Schofields holiday home insurance scheme was originally designed for the largest holiday cottage letting agency in the UK, back in the days when people booked their holidays from a brochure. Over the years it has been adopted and recommended by tourist associations and leading holiday letting agencies. We insure thousands of holiday home owners and holiday let investors with property in the UK and overseas. The policy wording has been approved by building societies, banks and is readily accepted by lenders.
The insurance is available for property in the United Kingdom (and other parts of the British Isles), France, Spain, Italy and Portugal that are commercially let or used by family and friends.
Registered in England, Schofields is an award winning company, gaining the Insurance Times Most Efficient Independent North West Broker Award. Based in Bolton, Schofields are Insurance Brokers and Coverholders for certain syndicates at Lloyd's of London, regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
We are also able to provide other high quality insurance products and services:
- Main residence home insurance which includes annual travel insurance.
- Insurance for holidaymakers and cottage owners who protect their cottage holidays against holiday cancellation.
Above all, Schofields Insurance remains committed to developing tailored insurance solutions offering value for money and excellent customer service.
