Questions to ask when choosing home insurance

When you’re choosing your home insurance, there are many things to consider. We’ve narrowed down some of the key elements of home insurance which you should be looking for.

 

Do they offer enough cover for you needs?

Do you need building and contents insurance? It’s generally advised that you take out both but it does depend on your individual circumstances.

 

You should also make sure your home is covered for the rebuild value rather than the market value. Additionally, many people underestimate the value of their possessions, so be sure to carefully cost your contents to make sure the policy will be enough to cover it all.

 

Does your policy include New for Old replacement?

This is offered as standard with most (but not all) contents policies now, but it is still worth checking. It means if an item needs replacing you will receive a similar but new product to the old item, rather than the value of the old one.

 

What excess are you able to pay?

When you make a claim on your insurance policy you will have to pay an excess. This normally comes in two parts: a compulsory excess and a voluntary excess. The compulsory part is set by your insurer whereas the voluntary part is set by you. The higher the voluntary excess, the lower your monthly premiums will be.

 

Does your building have a special feature?

Some buildings, such as listed buildings and buildings with a flat or thatched roof may not be covered by standard insurance. You will thus need to look for specialist cover that matches your needs.
