Householders Insurance - How much insurance?

Do not under-insure! If you d0, most companies will pay you compensation reduced in the same proportion as the amount by which you are under-insured. Thus, if you insure for £ 30, 000 the buildings of your house worth £62,000 and you subsequently claim for damage of £700, your insurer will pay you five sevenths of your claim =

How much insurance do you need? As far as the buildings are concerned, you should insure for the full cost of rebuilding in case of total loss. This is not necessarily the same as the property's market value since the latter also includes the value of gardens and the land on which your property is built. However, if you are uncertain, insure for the market value. It is better to over-insure rather than to under-insure, but you can never claim more compensation than the current value of your loss. Include the value of your garage, walls, gates, fences, and extensions; fixtures and fittings, water pipes, tanks, radiators, etc. Include the cost of removing debris from an accident and the fees of architects or surveyors, for which you should add about 10 % to your sum insured.

Most people tend never to review their policies once they have taken them out. As house prices and building costs have risen over the last few years, most people are therefore considerably under-insured. Remember to review regularly the amount of cover you have, especially if you rebuild part of your house or add extensions.
