What does home insurance cover?

Home insurance falls into these main categories:

  • Buildings Insurance (also known as Household Insurance) - If you're a homeowner or about to take that next step, then you should consider a buildings insurance policy. Although it's not a legal requirement, some mortgage lenders may insist that you have at least a buildings insurance policy in place, to cover the property. Buildings cover insures your bricks and mortar against damage from specific events such as fire, flood and subsidence.
  • Contents Insurance - This provides cover in the event of a fire, theft or flood. This cover is designed to protect your belongings. Personal belongings are items that you ordinarilly take with you when you move home.
  • Combined Insurance (also known as Buildings and Contents Insurance) - Usually only suitable if you own your own home - this will insure your property against damage but also cover your belongings in the house under the same insurance policy. You can also add optional extras to your policy such as home emergency cover and legal cover, but you may find that some providers cover these as standard.
  • Accidental damage cover is another extra worth considering as it covers unintentional one-off incidents that harm your property or its contents, such as putting your foot through the floor when you're searching around in the loft or spilling wine on the carpet.
