home legal expenses 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 expenses insurance is an insurance product primarily designed to offer protection to you and your family for your costs of pursuing a claim, for damages in an accident sustained in the course of employment. It also offers representation in the event of a tax investigation, protection of your earnings whilst attending jury service, defence against contract disputes and provides legal assistance to negotiate for your legal rights in a civil action relating to material property.

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 together as a combined package or on their own. However if you purchase the emergency home assistance and home legal expenses products together as a combined package you will receive a discount as we offer a cheaper rate to customers purchasing the combined package.
