Property insurance can be a complex matter, particularly when insuring a second home, which is why it’s so important to deal with an experienced broker and ensure you have the correct level of cover in place.
What is considered a ‘second home’?
A second home is a term that is used to describe a property that is not your main place of residence, but it is a property that you still visit regularly and do not let out. Many people think that a second home and a holiday home are the same thing; however this is not the case.
A second home must be visited fairly frequently cannot be used for holiday purposes, otherwise it will be considered by insurers as a holiday home.
