WHILE spend­ing on the in­side of our homes in­creases, so does the need to pro­tect them.

Al­though 82 per cent of home­own­ers say their home con­tents are in­sured, one in 20 ad­mit they don’t know whether their con­tents are cov­ered. One in ten has no home con­tents insurance at all.

Tim Downes of Lloyds Bank Insurance, said: “The home has al­ways been an ex­ten­sion of the owner’s iden­tity and that in­vest­ment in im­prov­ing it is of­ten driven by a de­sire for per­sonal com­fort and pre­sent­ing an im­age to visi­tors.

“But it is cru­cial that home­own­ers slow down oc­ca­sion­ally to check that their prized pos­ses­sions are ad­e­quately pro­tected.”
