Here are 3 important issues you need to consider when you are looking to by home insurance.
- Protect your possessions. When you are looking to buy home insurance, you need to ensure that you work out exactly how much you need covering, so you don’t leave yourself short should anything happen and you need to put in a claim. An example of this is if you underestimate your total value of possessions and then make a claim, you will be out of pocket and not be covered for everything you may lose. A great way to value your possessions is to do an inventory, room by room to make sure you do not miss anything.
- Raise your excess. This may sound wrong but actually increasing the excess you have on your policy will mean that your policy will cost less and you will pay less each month or year. This is great if you are unlikely to make claims for small amounts. It will also have an impact on the long term cost of renewing your policy as the fewer small claims you put in, the lower your insurance will become.
- Accidental damage. Your building is normally covered by accidental damage, such as a car crashing into it, but you may need to check and see if your content is also included. This is a great addition to your policy although you will have to take into consideration that accidental damage to your contents does not include damage caused by maintaining, cleaning or repairing an item.
These are three issues you really do need to consider when buying home insurance and no doubt the cost of you policy will be the main one. A good way to get a clear picture of what the policy is going to cost and what cover you will get is to compare home insurance on one of the many sites available. That way you will be able to see which is best for you.
