Get home contents insurance as burglaries are on the increase says Sainsburys

According to the house insurance specialist Sainsbury's, insurance claims have dropped despite an increase in burglaries. Probably due to the fact that many homeowner’s are now not taking out home contents insurance.

Around one million homeowners have already cancelled their home insurance policy this year says Sainsbury's regardless of an increase in theft.

The Home Office has reported that there was an increase in the number of burglaries in the UK of just under three per cent when compared to the same period last year.

Sainsbury's say a large proportion of home insurance claims do relate to theft and therefore ask homeowners to make sure that they have home security measures in place and also have a good home contents insurance policy.
