Frequently asked questions
Is it essential to have home insurance?
Although it’s not a legal requirement to have home insurance, most mortgage lenders will insist you have buildings cover in place if you’re a homeowner.
What is accidental damage cover?
Accidental damage is typically an unintentional one–off incident that damages either your property or its contents. As it’s not included as standard on policies, adding this as an extra can ensure you’re covered for incidents that would otherwise be excluded.
What is legal cover for home insurance?
Legal expenses cover, also known as family legal protection, is designed to protect you in the event of a legal dispute such as personal injury at your property. It’ll cover legal expenses and costs up to a certain amount. For more information see our guide for legal protection.
