Keep it under lock and key

As the summer continues the likelihood of burglary is on the increase. As people head off on holiday or out for an evening with friends, it leaves your property at risk to those with light fingers.

If you are going on holiday then security is paramount but even just heading out for the evening it is important to lock up. Theft has increased due to the recession and home owners are recognising this.

Most burglaries take place when the owners are on holiday so home contents insurance is a must. Burglary is not a nice experience, however if you have contents insurance then at least you can replace your belongings. It is important to make sure if you have got any high value items that you state them when taking out your household contents insurance.

When it comes to burglary it is all the normal high value items that attract attention, like laptops, games consoles, DVDs and cameras. If these can be hidden away and out of sight it can help prevent a break in.

Adding secure door and window locks plus of course an alarm will also deter any would be burglar. For ultimate peace of mind make sure your home contents insurance is up to date.
