Recent events across the globe has made most of us more aware of the devastation that an earthquake can cause. Here in the UK we have not really experienced earthquakes of the magnitude that other parts of the world get but that does not mean we do not have them. In the last 30 days alone, there have been 6 recorded earthquakes in the UK.
Most of these may not be felt due to their relatively small power but every now and then they do hit us hard and we need to be the best prepared we can. Obviously we never know when they will come so be financially protected is pretty much all we can do.
The main and most obvious asset to protect is our homes. You should always ensure that you have buildings insurance that covers your property in the event of an earthquake. Even the most minor of quakes can cause cracks in your building that could end up dangerous if left untreated.
