icon Do I need home insurance?

Home insurance isn't compulsory for your home. However, we believe it is a good pre-emptive measure to consider to make sure your home and the contents you care about are protected from any potential risks. Having home insurance means you will not be out of pocket if you need to repair your home or replace your belongings after they’ve been stolen, damaged, or destroyed. Otherwise, it can cost a lot of money to replace their items, some of which may be essential. More importantly, if you own your own home and have a mortgage, most mortgage lenders will insist that you have buildings insurance.

Accidental Damage

This covers you against accidental damage to your home and the things in it. So if a football smashes your window or a fire occurs within your home, we can provide the cover to pay to repair the damage or replace your belongings.

This covers you against unexpected or major damage to your home caused by environmental factors such as floods, fires, or storms. This is essential if your property is based in an area such as the coast that is prone to experiencing floods and storms.

How much does home insurance cost?

Your premium is based on several factors relating to you, your home, as well as the value of your items. For example, The greater the risk of loss and damage to your home and belongings, the higher your insurance quote is likely to be. Below are some factors we consider when insuring a home and its contents, which include but are not limited to:

Location

Insuring locations with a higher crime rate may increase the cost of cover.

If you’ve agreed to a contract with a specific customer, client or organisation, they may insist that you have a minimum amount of insurance before you can undertake any work.

The larger your property is, the greater it may cost to have it insured or rebuilt

Living in other locations that are exposed to severe weather conditions can affect the cost of your insurance. For example, homes near rivers or coastlines are more expensive to insure due to a higher risk of flooding.

The age of your property and materials used to build your house can have a huge impact on your quote. For example, wooded structures are particularly vulnerable to fires or rot.

Factors such as your age, whether you are married with children, or if you live away from home for long periods can all have an impact on your quote.

The more expensive your items are, the more it will cost you to get them insured.

    Home Insurance FAQs

    Is home insurance compulsory?

    Home insurance is not always compulsory, however, if you are a homeowner, most mortgage lenders may insist you have buildings cover in place.

    Buildings insurance covers the structure of your home and its fixtures and fittings. This includes fitted kitchens and bathrooms, as well as walls, doors, windows, and roofs. Contents insurance on the other hand covers the things that make a house a home. This means things like furniture, carpets, clothes, electronics, and personal items.

    If you don’t have home insurance, we recommend home insurance to protect you from any major damage or theft to your home or belongings. This is because if any of your contents are lost, stolen, or damaged you will be responsible to pay for costs incurred to replace your valuables or rebuild your property, which can of course be incredibly expensive.
