What Does Home Insurance Cover?

Home insurance is not currently a legal requirement in the UK, but it does provide protection for your home and it’s contents against a number of circumstances, including natural disasters, damage, and theft.

If you are a homeowner, your mortgage provider may require that you take out a building insurance policy, while tenants renting a property may want to take out contents insurance to protect your belongings.

You can get one or the other, or both – but it does depend on your individual circumstances.
