Finding the right cover

It’s important to do plenty of research before buying renters 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.
