Home Insurance

Home insurance is possibly one of the most straightforward of the insurance market. It doesn’t matter the size or shape of your home, you still want to protect it as much as possible. Part of this is going to be purchasing home insurance to make sure that if anything did go wrong, you are covered. You cannot predict whether there’s going to be a fire or flood. You cannot predict if strong winds are going to blow the tiles off your house. What you can do, is cover yourself – just in case.
There are two types of home insurance:

Building Insurance

Building insurance covers the structure of the house; the roof, walls and windows. It’s not just this, though, as buildings insurance also covers the permanent fixtures of the home.

Contents Cover

Contents insurance does the rest; the value of your belongings inside the home needs to be covered in case of damage.

Other Options

There are options for students, landlords, those with an empty home and even farmhouses, where the home isn’t just a home, it’s a business, too. Selecting the right home insurance cover isn’t always simple, but with 1st Mortgage Services you can get the right insurance for you from a number of companies we deal with. You do need to consider home insurance as part of owning your own home, and if you’re a tenant, you need to think about contents insurance. Speak to us at 1st Mortgage Services today on 01845 501830 and we will be happy to help.

Given my experience, I feel that the company/individual operate in such a way that treating customers fairly is central to their culture. Julie was always on hand to answer my queries and advise me of the best way forward and sorting everything out for me, as I needed it, to a tight timescale. I could not have asked for a better service.
