Home Insurance Explained

Home insurance offers protection against the event that either your home or its contents are damaged. It also provides financial protection against damage and injury that you may have caused to someone else’s property. If you are a mortgage holder your lender will more often than not, require you to take out a home insurance policy.

There are a few different types of home insurance policy, ranging from very basic to policies which offer comprehensive coverage.
