What is Home Insurance, and how does it work?
Home Insurance can protect your home and possessions when the unexpected happens, as well as damage and loss due to things like fires, floods, and storms. When selecting your policy, you can choose from 3 types of Home Insurance; Combined, Buildings only, or Contents only, and 3 levels of cover, depending on your protection needs.
With a combined Home Insurance policy through Safeguard, your home will be covered both externally and internally, which makes it the highest level of protection that we can offer. Our combined policy could work out to be cheaper and more convenient, depending on what your needs are, and it will cover both under one simple policy. Alternatively, you can choose a policy which covers just one aspect of your home, Buildings or Contents Insurance.
If you own your home or have a mortgage, Buildings Insurance covers what will likely be the most expensive thing you own, so it's a great idea to protect it. Contents Insurance covers the things that are in your home, so should the worst happen, you can get back on your feet and replace the things that make your house a home.

Our optional extras, explained.
Home Emergency Insurance provides cover for work undertaken by an authorised contractor to resolve a sudden and unforeseen incident in your home. For example, when you or someone else is exposed to a risk to health, or there’s a risk of loss or damage to your home or any of your belongings, making your home uninhabitable.
Examples of home emergencies would include heating and hot water failure, or failed electrics like wiring to immersion heaters/boilers, or bathroom lights breaking.
Legal Protection Insurance provides cover for legal costs, if you were to take legal action in the pursuit or defence in situations such as clinical negligence, employment disputes or claims relating to property issues, to name a few.
Excess Protection, also known as Home Excess Reimbursement Insurance, means you will get repaid the amount of any policy excess you have to pay, up to your policy limit, when you make a successful claim under your home insurance policy.

Frequently asked questions
No, you won’t need to take out Buildings Insurance if you rent your home, that would be something the landlord needs to do. However, as a renter, it’s good to consider Contents Insurance to protect what’s yours in your home.
Check your policy wording, but things such as:
- Unoccupied homes, any loss or damage caused by malicious acts, escape of water, theft or accidental damage when your home will be unoccupied or unfurnished for over 60 days.
- Any loss or damage caused by deception unless the only deception is gaining entry to the home.
- Computer viruses that damage laptops and computers.
- Damp, as it’s seen as a general maintenance requirement of the property.
Our Contents Insurance has a maximum amount that the insurer will pay out per item of £2,000. If you have items like designer handbags, consider telling us as you may need extra cover. These items are referred to as ‘high-risk’.
Buildings Insurance covers the physical structures of your home if they’re damaged and need rebuilding or repairing.
Contents Insurance covers the cost of replacing your belongings in your home if they’re stolen or damaged, think of them as the items you can pick up and take if you moved house.
