Landlord insurance clients keen to keep up to date with the latest financial news should visit the This is Money website. It contains all kinds of information about money matters and recently carried a feature on household insurance claims.
One of the insurers quoted said that household claims caused by adverse weather had doubled in the past three years. Perhaps this is not so surprising given the last couple of winters. Many of the claims relate to roof damage so it makes sense to make sure that your roof covering is in good condition. Other items that can easily be damaged by storms are garage and shed doors and gates so make sure they are securely fastened.
