The cost of insuring your own home depends on your age, your financial situation and your income.
For example, if you’re in your early 20s and your annual income is about £20,000, you might have to pay £30,000 for insurance coverage, whereas if you earn more than £50,000 a year, you may have to spend up to £80,000.
But with this in mind, it’s worth checking if there’s any benefit to buying a large insurance policy.
The biggest advantage is that it may provide you with protection from the risk of a claim.
It also means that you can shop around for the cheapest rates.
You can also look into the benefits of being a member of a national insurance scheme, which covers people over the age of 60.
