Home insurance is a way of protecting yourself financially in the event that your home or personal belongings are damaged, destroyed or stolen. There are different levels of cover available, depending on the policy you choose and your insurance provider. You may wish to cover only the contents of your property, or require more comprehensive insurance to cover subsidence and replacement locks following a break-in.
There are a number of different types of home insurance. The two main types are Buildings Insurance and Contents Insurance. Most home insurance policies contain both buildings and contents cover, but you can choose only one type of protection. In addition, you may wish to consider specialised home insurance, which can help provide a more suitable level of cover if your property has special features such as a slate tile roof. Like most insurances, choosing the right policy can be difficult but shopping around should help you find the deal that best suits your needs and your budget.
