What happens if you don’t have an insurance policy?
It is of most importance that you have the right insurance policy in place for when disaster does strike, so that any damage to your roof tiles, the chimney or other parts of your home exterior can be covered for when a claim is submitted. If you do not have an insurance policy in place, you may be required to pay out in full for any damage to your home, as well as any third-party damages to other people’s property or to themselves. When it comes to weather-related damage, the price to be paid out can sometimes be significantly more.
