How to claim
Before you call us:
- Call the police and get a crime reference number or lost property number if you're claiming for theft, riot, malicious damage or vandalism, or accidental loss outside your home.
- Make sure everything is safe to avoid more damage or theft – but please speak to us before you make any repairs.
- Check your home insurance to make sure you're covered before you call.
- Call us with your policy number to hand if you want to make a claim, or if something happens that you could claim for – even if you decide not to.
- We'll take all the details of why you're claiming and what happened – including a list of everything that's lost or damaged. There's a few tips below on this for you too.
- Keep the damaged items as we may need to see them – except freezer food, a list is fine for that.
- We'll work out and arrange the next steps – for example we'll organise accommodation, a repair or a replacement, or reimburse you.
- We'll let you know about any excess you have to pay towards your claim.
What details to give us:
- Your policy number
- Your crime reference or lost property number if you have one
- The date the damage, theft or loss happened
- We may ask you for more information, like proof of ownership, valuations and estimates – we can accept receipts and invoices, credit agreements, pre-loss valuations and sometimes just a photo
It's a good idea to check what's covered and how you're protected if you're not sure. That way, if your home gets damaged or burgled, you can see if we can help before you make a claim.
