Rural Insurance

We Know Estate Insurance

One of the UK’s leading estate insurers, Lycetts offers rural businesses and homes an unrivalled combination of client experience and technical expertise.

Traditional estate insurance remains Lycetts core business, demonstrated by our ability to obtain consistently competitive terms for our clients over the long term, through the full spectrum of market conditions.


The quality of this advice has never been so important as it is today, as estates diversify into new challenges. Lycetts thrives on these challenges, offering innovative and flexible insurance solutions for increasingly complex rural estates and businesses. Diversification remains one of the key ambitions of many estates, and Lycetts has been able to advise clients to enable them to achieve their goals.


Our advice is hands-on, bespoke and local. Our nationwide network of offices mean that our account executives, many of whom come from rural backgrounds, have highly relevant knowledge and are on-hand to visit clients as and when required. This local network allows clients to build firm working relationships with account executives, rather than communication via a telephone call centre or through a computer screen.


Our estate insurance schemes protect your property, business and business assets, personal effects, and professional liabilities alike.

How to claim estate insurance.

In the event of a claim, please notify your Lycetts account executive or claims handler as soon as possible, and certainly of the incident. Some policies have strict time limits for notification of claims, so if there is a delay you may prejudice your claim.


If the claim is to be for theft or malicious damage, please remember to report the incident to the police and obtain a crime reference number. On larger claims (in excess of £2,000), insurers may wish to appoint a loss adjuster, in which case your Lycetts team will provide advice on procedure. Regarding liability claims, it is essential that any potential claims are notified to Lycetts immediately and all correspondence is promptly forwarded to your Lycetts contact.

Do you legally need to train your staff in health and safety?…

Do you legally need to train your staff in health and safety?...

The simple answer is yes you do, but there are more compelling arguments other than the fact that it is a legal requirement. There are also good moral and financial business cases to be made.
