Insurance can be a confusing mine field of information; who needs insurance? What type of cover and how much do you need? How do you find the best deal?
This brief guide will help to alleviate some of that insurance anxiety.
Although house insurance is not obligatory most mortgage lenders will insist on it prior to any legal agreement. The type of cover needed to ensure your home is protected is a combination of building insurance and contents insurance. These will protect the building itself and all of your belongings.
When it comes to how much cover to take out on an insurance policy this can pose a predicament to most with an estimated 75% of Britons having the incorrect amount of cover; be it too much or too little.
