Does it not state it on the sales contract or title deeds? I know most do but some don't. I would measure it as it doesn't need to be 100% accurate - usually they only send an accessor out if it's a non standard build, an adobe house or has high value items though there would be no harm in asking them.

I've never seen the deeds so I don't know about them but it's not on the contract.

Did they have policy information in English? I got a quote from Allianz but everything was in Hungarian and I've not got any further with it as I didn't know what cover I was getting. I also got a quote from an Aegon agent I heard of via the Balaton Britons mailing list. He did provide English language information but the level of cover seemed poor.

Phone Allianz and ask them to send you a copy in English, shouldn't be a problem.

Fib, just found the English copy of Allianz's insurance offers, terms and conditions - do you want me to email you it?

Allianz, there is one in Keszthely but sure there is a branch near you. House/car insurance in my opinion is very good

Try to make sure you get an adequate level of cover. I got some quotes but the 3rd party cover (i.e. injury to neighbours or whatever) seemed very poor. I still need to get insurance as I didn't come up with anything that seemed satisfactory. I thought my new entrance door with 5 point locking would be a plus point for security but it seems to be regarded as an added risk, as it is UPVC whereas the old door was metal.

I use Aegon which was suggested to me by an agent when we bought our property...even though they probably got a nice fat commission from it and the agent was dodgy as hell (ahem...lets not get on to that again)...Aegon themselves have turned out to be good (not sure if competitive though). When our house was struck by lightening last year which hit the electrics and blew up our laptops...they were quick to pay out. Note...during any storm unplug your electrics especially laptops. There is a blocker thing you can buy from MediaMarket if not

Agent as in 'property agent' not the insurance agent....
