Retaining walls – the risk explained (Part 2)

The policy will indicate whether the retaining walls are covered and list any exclusions which apply to them. If retaining walls are not specifically excluded, and the damage which happens is caused by something other than the mentioned exclusions, the retaining wall will be covered within the terms of the policy. Certain retaining walls are uninsurable due to the nature of their construction and the intrinsically higher incidence of damage claims related to them.
