Buildings insurance covers the structure of your property, including the roof, walls and windows. You are also covered for the permanent fittings inside your home such as, a fitted kitchen and a fitted bathroom suite.

Contents insurance covers the contents of your house, in the event of loss, damage or theft. It also includes things outside of your control like, floods, storms, theft, fires, subsidence and water leaks. You can insure valuable items like jewellery, bikes, laptops etc in and away from the home.

Depending on which policy you need, you can choose how much cover you need to protect your building, for example, how much would it cost to rebuild your house. You can also choose how much cover you need to replace all the belongings in your property.

You can add extra’s such as, accidental damage and legal expenses.

These factors will affect your monthly premium but are optional.

FAQ’s For Home Insurance

Is a home insurance policy compulsory?

It depends on the policy, and your situation. For example, if you are applying for a mortgage, the lender might require that you have building cover in place before they grant the mortgage. You don’t have to take out contents cover, but its recommended to have cover in place for your belongings.

If I rent, do I need home insurance?

You wouldn’t need buildings cover, this should be provided by the homeowner. However, it would be beneficial to have contents insurance so that if there were any issues, all of your contents are protected.

What's the difference between building cover and contents cover?

Buildings cover will protect the actual building (bricks and mortar) if there is any damage to the property. Whereas contents insurance will protect all of your belongings within your home in case something happened, such as, you are broken into, your home is flooded, a fire occurs and your contents are stolen or damaged.
