Loan charges: Homeowners should 'check their contents insurance following Xmas'

Consumers should check their contents insurance to make sure it covers all the new Christmas purchases.

Sainsbury’s Bank revealed that in the first week of January the average home contains £502 worth of new gifts and £210 worth of new purchases, which includes post-Christmas purchases.

In addition, an estimated 2.1 million homes receive gifts worth at least £1,000 and 690,000 households make purchases worth over £1,000 in the January sales.

As a result, Brits could see the value of the contents in their home go above their insurance limit, which could leave them out of pocket if they have to make a claim, leaving it difficult to meet loan charges.

"Checking the value of your cover, and notifying your insurer of any new high value items will take minutes and will ensure you start the year fully protected," said David Barrett from Sainsbury’s Home Insurance.

"It's always a good idea to keep receipts for any new items you may have, or have bought for someone else as this can help with any home insurance claims."
