ABI confirms that anyone following the Government’s latest Covid guidance to work from home where they can will not normally have to tell their home insurer, unless in specific circumstances. The position on this remains unchanged from the ABI’s commitment made in April this year .
If you are an office-based worker and will continue to work from home, it will remain the case that you don’t need to contact your insurer unless any of the following applies:
Anyone who has established, or is planning to establish, a business from home during the pandemic, or has moved the running of their business to their home premises, should discuss the cover required with their insurer or broker.
It is important to make sure that your policy documentation is accurate, and your policy cover remains right for you.
If you are not sure, you should contact your insurer or broker to check.
