New homeowners and home insurance

As the housing market is starting to move new homeowners are starting to venture into the market.

Buying a house, especially for the first time, is very stressful and there is a lot to think about. One of the last things on your mind will probably be home insurance as it is just one more cost. However it is something which is essential because as a new home owner you just don't know what can go wrong with your purchase and you need the security of being covered.

It is important to get the correct cover for you and your property, for example if it is a period property it will need different cover to a modern house. Also if you have some items that are of high value they need to be stated on your insurance too.

When you are taking out insurance you can lower your premium by showing that you are protecting your home from all the key risks. Fitting door and window locks is a good start point and you can take that a step further by adding an alarm. Fitting smoke alarms will also help as it improves your chances of stopping a fire.

If your home is at flood risk you need to state this when taking out insurance as it is essential you have the correct cover. If you don't state you are in a flood region and then get flooded your insurance won't be able to pay out to rebuild your home.
