Homeowners urged to check insurance

Homeowners are being urged to carry out checks on their properties, and make sure they have taken out insurance, as the winter weather sets in.

HOMEOWNERS are being urged to carry out checks on their properties, and make sure they have taken out insurance, as the winter weather sets in.

Housing and homelessness charity Shelter Scotland warned that cutting corners could mean paying more in the long run.

It said proper preparations are needed to protect homes against the weather and owners should check what is covered by their insurance policy.

The charity said one in six households does not have home contents insurance.

Gordon MacRae, head of communications and policy at Shelter Scotland, said: “With the harsh winter weather already gripping Scotland, it’s vital that homeowners do not delay vital checks to their properties.”
