Archive: Millions of homes could have incorrect home insurance

According to a new report from SunLife, up to 10 million homes could be wrongly insured. The report finds that 67% of homeowners are unaware of the rebuild cost of their home with over a third (35%) assuming that this is the same as the value of their house. This report on Home Insurance in What Mortgage Magazine in December.*

How this affects home owners

Adam Nanson, Managing Director of Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“I speak to many Home Insurance clients who are unclear about how to calculate the rebuild cost of their home, so the findings of this research do not come as a surprise.

“The rebuild cost is basically the amount of money that a home owner would need to rebuild their home from scratch of it was completely destroyed. This could be less than the actual value of the property, but in some cases could be more.”
