home legal protection insurance and emergency home assistance

Emergency home assistance is an insurance product that will help protect you in the event of a domestic emergency. Home emergencies can be stressful and sometimes difficult to resolve, but with emergency home assistance insurance you can give yourself peace of mind knowing that in the event of a home emergency the insurer will appoint a suitably qualified contractor to attend your home to try to solve your problem.

Home legal protection insurance is designed to provide cover for legal costs up to £100,000 for pursing or defending a claim in a variety of different situations, such as employment disputes, making a claim if you are injured and it’s not your fault or taking legal action against a tradesman who is refusing to put right faulty workmanship. Home legal protection also provides a 24hr personal legal helpline which can provide initial legal advice on any private legal matter within the UK.

When arranging your home insurance through autonet home insurance we offer these products to you to give you extra protection as this type of cover is generally not included by the home insurance company. You can purchase both products individually, or we offer a combined package of emergency home assistance and home legal protection together at a discounted rate.

how emergency home assistance insurance can help you

Imagine it was the middle of winter and your main heating system suffers a total failure or breakdown so your heating stops working. With the winters we have had the last few years it would be a living nightmare as you would either have to go without heating or call out a contractor and pay to get your heating system fixed.

With emergency home assistance insurance this would take this worry away, because should your main heating system fail or breakdown, the insurer will pay for a contractor to come out to your home address and pay the following costs to try to resolve the issue:

  • This cover will pay up to £1000 per claim including VAT, call out, labour, parts and materials to carry out an emergency repair;
  • Pay towards parts & materials to fix the problem up to a maximum of £100
  • If the home is uninhabitable and remaining so because of a covered event, this cover will pay for alternative accommodation costs up to a maximum of £250
  • The maximum amount payable per claim is £1000

Cover is underwritten by the UK Branch of Inter Partner Assistance S.A. a Belgian firm authorised by the National Bank of Belgium. Deemed authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority.
