If you suffer one of the emergencies above in your home, you can obtain assistance by contacting the 24 hour emergency helpline providing as much information as possible including your policy number.
Following a claim, this cover will organise and pay up to £1000 per claim including VAT, call out, labour, parts and materials to carry out an emergency repair.
In the event of your home becoming inhabitable and remaining so because of a covered event, this cover will contribute up to £200 including VAT towards the cost of your (including your pets) accommodation including transport, on a reimbursement basis.
Home Legal Protection Insurance

• Making a claim if you are injured and it’s not your fault, such as being knocked off your bicycle or slipping on a wet floor.

Your Home Legal Protection Insurance applies to you and any members of your family who permanently reside with you at your home.
