It’s important to do plenty of research before buying home insurance so that you can be certain you’ve chosen the right cover to suit your needs. Home insurance policies can vary widely depending on which provider you go to, so check the cover limits and exclusions carefully before buying.
You’ll need to look after your property as insurance is not a maintenance contract and won’t cover damage caused by wear and tear.
You should also make sure it is secured properly, as if you’ve been negligent and someone breaks in, any claim you make is likely to be refused.
Don’t just put your home insurance policy in a drawer and forget about it, as you may be able to make savings from switching when your cover comes up for renewal.
Automatically renewing your cover with the same provider is often more expensive, so visit our home insurance channel to see if you can find cheaper equivalent cover elsewhere.
