Is esure home insurance right for you?
Emergency situations cannot be anticipated meaning people are rarely financially prepared if their home suffers an accident, adverse weather damage, a fire or theft. Building repairs are expensive and with most properties holding approximately £25,000 of contents, home insurance is a good way to be ready for the worst.
Home Insurance is generally separated in to buildings and content cover. You can normally purchase these policies together as one joint cover plan from most providers or you can purchase them separately.
Buildings insurance will cover the structure of your building and will include the walls, windows, floors and ceilings; it will also include the fixed amenities in your household, such as the bathroom and kitchen suites.
Contents insurance will cover your personal items, including jewellery, as well as your electronics, carpets, curtains etc. Providers will usually offer other options which you can add on if you need them.
