Preparing For The Unexpected
Most if us would like to think that when our lives come to an end we will be old, our loved ones will be financially secure and our financial responsibilities will be taken care of. Sadly this is always the reality.

Home insurance provides you with financial protection in the event of a disaster or accident involving your home.
There are three main types of home insurance: Buildings Insurance; contents insurance and buildings and contents insurance combined.
This covers the building itself against things like fire and flood damage. It will also cover permanent or fitted fixtures and fittings in your home and garden, and any outbuildings that form part of your home.
Most policies have standard level of cover ( eg 300,000). This sum should be sufficient to cover the full cost of rebuilding your property. It is important to realise that the rebuilding cost is not always the same as the market value of your property.
This protects your household goods and personal possessions such as electrical goods and jewellery, clothes and furniture.
The standard level of cover for contents us usually between £30,000 to £50,000. This might be sufficient for some households but it is important not to underestimate the value of your possessions.
Other things to consider when choosing your policy
This is something that is not always covered as standard. Accidental damage will cover you if yo spill paint on your carpet, break an ornament, or put your foot through the ceiling whilst clambering around in the loft! At some point or another, most households suffer this kind of mishap! This might be a feature you decide you can’t do without.
Personal possessions away from the home
If you take valuable items away from your home regularly, you might want to consider covering these possessions on your home insurance policy.
The cost of defending or pursuing a legal case could soon mount up and most home policies usually provide the option of adding legal expenses for a small additional premium.
‘You get what you pay for’
It might be tempting to go with the cheapest premium you can find, but are you confident you have the right level of cover for your needs? Your home is more than just bricks and water, if your unfortunate enough to have to have a claim on your insurance, the last thing you’ll want is a nasty surprise when you contact your insurer.
