Your contents policy may include an Alternative Accommodation benefit, which will respond if you are living in your home and need to move out to facilitate repairs.

Fletchers/EQR will contact you in plenty of time before they commence repairs, and can issue you with an “Insurance Advice Note” – this confirms the date and duration of repairs, whether they need you/your tenants out of the property, and whether they need your contents moved out.  This letter is required in order to lodge a claim.

In addition to accommodation and storage, your policy should include some other benefits.

[box]Check your policy wording to find out what your specific policy covers. It is important to find accommodation suitable for your needs, and your insurers will pay for “like-for-like” accommodation.[/box]
