Buildings Insurance covers the cost of repairing or rebuilding your property and replacing any permanent fixtures, following damage caused by instances such as weather, fire, subsidence or flood.
Contents Insurance covers your possessions against instances such as fire, theft, flood and malicious damage. Contents are normally described as the items you would take with you, if you were to move house, including furniture, personal items and valuables.
There are a number of optional extras you can add to your Buildings or Contents Insurance including:
- Legal expenses cover – To cover the legal costs in case you are involved in a dispute.
- Cover away from the home – Insure the items you take out and about against theft, loss and accidental damage.
- Accidental damage cover – Upgrade your policy to include accidental damage cover to protect your contents and your home.
- Home emergency – By adding home emergency cover, you’ll get protection against the loss of essential services.
