Your home is one of your most important investments, protect it.

Whether you're a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner, home insurance is something you should consider. Most mortgage lenders will require that you have some form of cover in place.

Home insurance is a type of property insurance that covers your home and possessions in the event of damage or theft.

Home insurance can help you repair or replace your home and belongings if they're damaged or destroyed by a covered event, such as a fire, storm, theft, or vandalism.

Your common home insurance questions, answered

Are my belongings covered outside my house?

Some insurers include personal possessions as standard, some others don’t. It’s important to check you have the right cover, not just the cheapest home insurance.

Does home insurance cover me to work from home?

In most cases you shouldn't have to take out any additional cover, though if you regularly work from home let your insurer know, not telling them could invalidate a future claim.

How much cover do I need?

To calculate the amount of cover you need, you should think about how much it would cost to rebuild your property; and how much it would cost to replace your belongings inside.

What if my property is empty?

Most home insurance policies will cover unoccupied properties for up to 60 days, if anything happens outside this period you’re unlikely to be covered.
