Executive Summary

This Key Note Market Report provides an overview of the market for home insurance in the UK. For the purposes of this report, home insurance is defined as insurance which covers, either together or separately, the structure of the building (which includes fixtures and fittings permanently attached to buildings, such as some kitchen or bathroom furniture) and its contents (which includes, sometimes, the contents of sheds or contents taken off the insured premises by the policyholder). As well as buildings and contents insurance, the two staples of the market, products also exist which cover a range of other household-related eventualities, including plumbing and drains insurance, domestic appliances insurance and boiler/central heating insurance.
