What you should know
Home insurance policies are there to cover loss or damage due to unforeseen events such as fire or floods. They are not designed to cover general wear-and-tear or damage caused by poor maintenance.
Optional extras include legal expenses cover, additional accidental damage cover and home emergency cover.
Policy Expert policies provide a basic level of accidental damage cover as standard, providing cover for things like windows, glass topped furniture and sanitary fittings.

Finding the right cover
When buying home insurance, it’s important to think carefully about your individual requirements and exactly how much and what type of cover you need.
For example, adding optional extras such as accidental damage cover might be a priority if you’ve got young children running around, but you might not consider it a necessity if you don’t.
Make sure your home security is up to scratch when you buy cover. Insurers often offer discounts to those whose homes have high quality locks and an alarm system. If your home isn’t secure, and someone breaks in, any claim you make is likely to be invalidated.
Why it pays to shop around
Always compare quotes from several different insurers before buying home insurance and remember that even if you’ve found a great deal one year, the renewal quote offered the following year could be much higher.
Make a note of when your policy is due to expire, and check to see whether you might be able to make savings by switching to an alternative provider. Use our home insurance channel to compare policies and find cover that’s right for you.
