One of the big home insurance providers the Halifax has just released news that around 10 per cent of UK homeowners don’t have contents cover on their home insurance policy.

Homeowners are risking their valuables and possessions being stolen in the event of a burglary. The Halifax’s house insurance survey brought to light that nearly 50 per cent of homeowners had no idea what their valuables and possession were worth, and a around 30 per cent had even had their antiques or collectable items valued.

If you were to purchase contents insurance then in the event of a theft you would then be entitled to some compensation for your loss.
