Home Emergency

Home Emergency cover is designed to provide cover following a sudden or unexpected event which if not dealt with quickly would render your home unsafe or insecure, cause further damage to your home or cause personal risk. The intention of the Home Emergency cover is to provide an engineer to complete a temporary repair to limit or prevent damage. If a permanent repair would be of a similar cost to a temporary repair, a permanent repair will be provided as long as it is within the scope of cover provided.

Home Emergency cover is not a maintenance policy and does not cover the cost of routine maintenance in your home. Nor does it provide or cover the cost of boiler servicing and/or maintenance.
