Keeping you, your property and your possessions safe

When buying a new home, or remortgaging your current one, it is a legal requirement to have buildings insurance in place to protect the bricks and mortar of your investment. This means that should the worst happen, you’ll be able to recover your assets and rebuild your beautiful home.

Contents insurance is another type of protection that comes highly recommended in order to safeguard your possessions within your home and in some instances outside.

While these two types of home insurance are separate entities, they can often be bought together with the added benefit of a multi-product discount. Talk to our protection experts about how best to keep your home and its contents safe.

Please be aware that for insurance business we offer products from a choice of insurers.

What is buildings insurance and do I need it?

Having suitable buildings insurance in place is something a mortgage lender will insist upon, regardless of whether it’s a new property or a remortgage.

Could you afford to pay the cost of rebuilding your home from scratch if there was a fire? Could you afford to pay for the repair work to your home following a major flood? Besides the fact that Buildings Insurance is a mandatory requirement for your mortgage, making sure you have cover in place from day one is an essential thing to do, not least to protect your most valuable asset – the roof over your family’s heads.

What is contents insurance and do I need it?

Contents insurance protects you against the loss of, or damage to, the contents of your home. This includes all of your furniture, electrical goods and personal goods too. There are even optional features of a contents insurance policy that will help cover you for items when you are away from your home.

Different policies offer different levels of cover, but we have access to a wide range of insurers from across the market. We can tailor the most suitable insurance product available to your circumstances at an affordable amount.

If you have high value items at home, we can also look to protect them from loss or damage by including them on an individual basis on your bespoke contents policy.
