Research from Legal & General (L&G) suggests that less than a quarter of homeowners are clear about what is and isn’t covered under their home contents insurance, while only one in five are likely to know exactly what their buildings insurance covers.
To help consumers get a better grasp, L&G has launched an “Interactive House” which allows customers to move through a 3D dwelling clicking on icons displayed throughout the property and in the surrounding grounds.
The icons then provide details of the different home insurance cover options available and state what is and isn’t covered.
The “house” is available to existing and potential L&G customers and includes hints and tips on home security, such as safety tips for wintery weather.
In addition, L&G’s home contents calculator can help tot-up a realistic total value of belongings.
The insurer’s director of general insurance, Mike Lawler, comments: “We hope that the Interactive House will help to bring home insurance policy terms and conditions to life and so help people to better understand and appreciate the value of their home insurance cover.”
