Unfortunately, we can never be fully certain of what life has in store. Covid-19 and the furlough scheme has highlighted how important it is to have a back up in place if you were to lose your income. We aim to look after you on every step of your journey through life, from buying your first home to ensuring you are protected.

This will also provide you with a tax free lump sum payment, which is paid upon diagnosis of a critical illness. Unfortunately nobody is exempt of becoming seriously ill. If you were to suffer from a critical illness, there could be serious financial implications potentially at your most vulnerable point.

This is another area that our insurance specialists can advise you on. Having home insurance in place will ensure that you are covered against the unexpected. Your property is likely to be your most expensive asset, it is important it is protected. We will offer products to protect you from loss, theft and damage.

You will need to have adequate buildings insurance to cover the cost of rebuilding your property and this will be a condition the mortgage offer. You do not have to take out a policy which is offered to you by the mortgage lender, you can take out a policy with any provider on the market. We will review the market and find a policy that both suits your needs and meets the requirements of your mortgage.
We will advise you to protect the contents of your home from loss, damage and theft. We’ll work with you to properly assess the value of your house contents, including any high value items or bicycles that will need to be specified within the policy. Again, we will review the market to find the most suitable policy to meet your requirements.
