What does home insurance cover?

Typically, there are two kinds of policy, and you can choose either one or both of these based on your needs:

Buildings cover insures your bricks and mortar against fire, flood and subsidence damage. Cover could include:

  • The building itself (including the roof)
  • Any fitted fixtures
  • Garden sheds
  • Some policies could include boilers as well

Contents cover protects your belongings against problems like theft, damage and loss. This could cover:

  • Your gadgets (laptop, smartphone, TV)
  • Your furniture e.g. bookcases, wardrobes, sofas
  • Clothes and jewellery
  • Family heirlooms and antiques

Why would I need it?

Although it's not a legal requirement, some mortgage lenders may insist that you have at least a buildings insurance policy in place.

If you're a tenant, your landlord is usually responsible for insuring the building itself, but not your belongings.

  • Around two in every 100 households in the UK were victims of burglary in 2013
  • The average value of items stolen has increased 40 per cent over the last three years.

With that in mind, it could be worth considering a contents policy to protect your personal possessions against loss or theft.
