Home insurance is a vital part of safeguarding your property and belongings. After ensuring we have got you the best mortgage for your needs, our mortgage and protection advisers want to protect your home for you too.

Home insurance is made up of two main types of cover:

1. Buildings insurance – cover for the structure of your home (walls, roof, windows etc.); and

2. Contents insurance – cover for everything inside the property (furniture, TV’s, laptops etc.)

In the event of your home being damaged by fire, flood, storm damage (to name a few) or for any malicious damage or theft a home insurance policy covers the costs of repairing your home or replacing contents within it, helping to remove any financial loss you could incur without insurance in place.

So, when it comes to finding insurance it’s important that you get quality cover as well as the best home insurance costs for you.

To support you in this area we are partnered with Nest GI Ltd, a home insurance specialist. Nest are a team of expert insurance advisers who will offer you full advice and recommend products tailored to your individual needs. They have access to a large panel of 5-star Defaqto rated providers which means they will get you the best quality cover for your needs.

  • Nest provide cover for non-standard properties, landlords and commercial products as well as normal residential homes.
  • Nest take full responsibility for their advice. When completing an application online, directly with an insurer or through another broker the policy may be arranged on a non-advised basis – this means that you are responsible for ensuring the cover meets your requirements and that you fit the full eligibility, any mistakes could result in a claim being rejected or not paid in full. By speaking to a trained adviser at Nest the risk of these mistakes is massively reduced and you receive extra protection through their own liability cover.

  • Alternative accommodation to temporarily relocate you and your family, including pets should your home be uninhabitable
