Is your home security good enough?
After nearly two very long years following government advice to work from home, on 21 January we were all told to go back to the office. It’s great news, especially since many employers discovered we all do our jobs rather well when we work from home, so ‘agile working’ is now much more common. But it also means that, for the first time since early 2020, our homes are empty for a big stretch of time every day. It’s time for some due diligence: is your home security good enough for your insurer?
Post-lockdown, are your valuables properly insured?
It's great to be out again. Finally, for the first time in two years, across the UK, we’re attending dinner parties, visiting restaurants, enjoying city breaks, taking in matches and shows, and (if you were like me this weekend) enjoying a sunshine barbecues with friends. Even shopping junkets have resumed. UK COVID restrictions are gone, and we’re back to buying and socialising. But wait… does your insurance cover your valuables away from home?
