Home Insurance will protect you from events such as fire damage to your home, or theft of your belongings. If your home is damaged or destroyed in a fire, having the right insurance will mean that your insurance provider will pay to replace your belongings and repair / rebuild your home.

If you own your home and have a mortgage, you’re responsible for both buildings and contents insurance. It’s worth having both on your policy so you’re covered for all eventualities.

However, if you rent your property you will only require contents insurance. Your landlord will be responsible for your buildings insurance. You can purchase buildings insurance or contents insurance. They can both be bought separately or together.

What Are The Different Levels Of Cover I Can Purchase?

When taking out a home insurance policy, you’ll be asked which type of cover you’d like to purchase. There are three levels of cover. Here are your options:

Buildings

This will help cover the cost of repairing or rebuilding the structure of your home if it’s damaged by an event that you’re insured for (e.g. fire, flood, storm etc.). It can also help with outside structures that are connected your home, such as garages and fences.

Contents

Contents insurance will help cover the costs of replacing your possessions in your home if they’re stolen, destroyed or damaged. It can be bought as a single policy. However, it is usually combined with buildings insurance unless you’re renting a property. If you are renting, your landlord will take responsibility for purchasing your buildings insurance.

Combined

This is a combination of Buildings and Contents insurance, and unsurprisingly the most popular policy to purchase. A combined policy will help cover you financially in the event that your home or belongings are damaged or destroyed. Your insurer will pay to replace your belongings and repair your home.
