  • If you need to make a claim, here’s what to do.

    1. Inform the police straight away if you’re claiming for something involving theft, riot, a malicious act or vandalism or accidental loss outside your home. Get a crime or lost property number.
    2. Check your policy booklet and policy schedule. These will give you details of what’s covered. You also need to read the detailed claims conditions.
    3. For new claims, call us on 0345 300 0110 as soon as possible, and give us the details of what’s happened. We’ll give you a claims reference number and try to resolve your claim as quickly as we can.
    4. We may need to inspect your damaged property before we approve your claim so:
    • Don't make any repairs without talking to us first - unless they are urgently needed to prevent further damage.
    • Don’t throw away any damaged goods without our consent. We may need to see them. This doesn’t apply to spoiled food – you can throw it away as soon as you’ve made a list of what’s been damaged.

    For claims under the Legal Expenses Cover section of your policy, call us on 0345 300 0180.

    After you’ve made a claim

    Once you’ve told us about your claim, we will:

    • Liaise with appointed suppliers about repairs or replacement items.
    • Contact you at each key stage of your claim to keep you updated on its progress.
    • Request extra information when needed.

    If you need to contact us during your claim, call us on 0345 300 0110. Have your claim reference number ready.

General cover

  • 1.
    What is wear and tear and can if affect my insurance claim?

    Most household insurance companies cover unexpected events, rather than gradual deterioration over time, which is what wear and tear is. Wear and tear includes things like damage because of light, atmosphere, mould, cleaning or restoring, and anything else that damages items slowly over time. So it’s important to make sure your property is maintained regularly to make sure your claim isn’t declined. Find out more about protecting against wear and tear.

  • 2.
    Are my visitors’ personal effects covered by my insurance?

    £500 per visitor whilst in your home.

    Back to top
  • 3.
    Will my premium change over time?

    Your premium may increase or decrease when you renew your cover. We’ll let you know about any changes.

    Back to top
  • 4.
    Am I charged interest on Direct Debit payments?

    No – you can spread your premium over 12 monthly instalments without any interest charges. Remember to keep your monthly payments up to date to remain covered.

    Back to top
  • 5.
    Do you cover flat felt roofs?

    Your flat felt roof is covered if its damaged by events such as a falling tree, storm or fire. The reason flat roofs create confusion is that they aren't covered for wear and tear. A roof like this has a lifespan of seven to ten years, so it would be best to check it regularly to make sure that it is well maintained to help avoid a claim being declined.

    Back to top
  • 6.
    If I had to move into temporary accommodation, would my policy look after my dogs?

    Yes. Your policy will help with the cost of alternative accommodation for you, your family and kennels or catteries for pets. Limits apply, so see your policy booklet to find out how much you’re covered for.

When you're moving home

  • 1.
    I’m moving home. When should I transfer my policy?

    A month to a week before the removal day, call us on 0345 300 0110 so we can transfer your buildings and contents insurance. We’ll need to run through the eligibility questions you answered when you took out your policy. As long as you and your home are still eligible we can simply change the insurance to the new address.

    If you need cover for your old and new address over the same period, we can offer it for up to 60 days at no extra cost. Just remember to mention it to the adviser when you call. Please note your premium may change.

    Back to top
  • 2.
    What if I don’t need the same cover at my new address?

    If you need different cover we may be able to change your existing policy. If not, we can just cancel your current cover and set up a new policy for you.
