Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

IN­SURANCE: Bri­tish house­hold­ers leave their homes un­oc­cu­pied for 51 days each year, work­ing out as three hours per day, say Churchill In­surance.

The ‘loneli­est homes’ are in Sh­effield, where households leave their homes empty for 60 days through­out the year, fol­lowed by Lon­don, at 58 days. Home­own­ers in Ply­mouth leave their houses empty for the least amount of time at 36 days

Martin Scott, head of Churchill home in­surance, says: “Pro­tect­ing your home is es­sen­tial all year round but the darker nights can pro­vide cover for a home in­tru­sion. We urge peo­ple to stay vig­i­lant and pro­tect their prop­er­ties.”
