Home and away

Now that the clocks have gone back the British winter is starting to close in and many people's thoughts will be turning to escaping the cold and wet weather.

Lots of people take off to the sunshine to their holiday homes for prolonged periods of time leaving their main residence empty. Leaving your home empty is always a risk but being away for months on end, especially during the dark winter months puts it at even higher risk.

It is important to have insurance cover if you are away for an extended period of time, no matter what the circumstances are. Unoccupied property cover is exactly what you need if this is the situation you find yourself in.

Getting your neighbour to keep an eye on the place is a good start and leaving a light on a timer will also help deter any would-be burglars. Ramping up security like window locks, and alarms will keep your home safe too. As well as unplugging any non-essential electricals.
