How does home insurance work and protect me?

If you are a home owner, home insurance is a must and will stay with you as an expense until you no longer need a home.
Tips to obtain affordable house or home insurance are:

•    Visit a comparison website
•    Fill in the details
•    See if the premiums are affordable
•    Check out the various additional options such as legal expenses cover and accidental damage insurance
•    Have double glazing fitted
•    Have a good security system fitted
•    Have good deadlocks for doors and windows
•    Keep your most expensive items at the bank in a safe deposit box
•    Don’t keep too much cash at home
•    Combine home and contents insurance to save
•    Adjust your excess and see if the premiums remain affordable.

Thieves are everywhere and security for the home is important, also protection against fire and accidental damage need to be considered. Your risk will be greatly reduced once you have the right home insurance. In today’s environment, home insurance is very competitive especially when combined with contents insurance.

Ways to purchase home and contents insurance are:


•    Search the internet
•    Contact your insurance broker

Using any of the methods above will enable you to compare a number of possible home insurance providers. You can check what is included in the standard premium and what extra options are available to give you extra protection.

Once you have selected the appropriate policy and paid your first premium, you will have a certain cooling off period of 14 days approximately. This will give you enough time to check the insurance documents and cover required. If any information looks incorrect immediately phone the insurance provider to have the policy corrected.

After a year, check again on the internet that the renewal premium is competitive by repeating the process again. An hour spent this way annually could save you money.

Adjust the excess to see if the premiums result in any additional savings.

Read the home insurance term and conditions carefully and store the documents in an easy to find place.
