The claims team need more information from you:

  • If you choose to use your own contractor, all our claims team need is a written estimate confirming the cause of the damage.

  • Give our claims team written confirmation of the outcome within three days of the inspection.

Top tips

Our top tips for making a home insurance claim:

Do's

  • Any claim for loss or malicious damage should be reported to the police.
  • Temporary repairs should be carried out to prevent further loss. If your claim is covered, then we'll reimburse you the cost, so keep hold of any invoices you pay.
  • Read your policy documents to see if you can use any of your optional cover, which is included in your policy. 

Dont's

  • Don’t dispose of any damaged items, as we may need to inspect them. Badly damaged property can be stored in a garage or shed.
