Family legal protection

What is family legal protection?

Family legal protection is available as an optional extra as part of your home insurance policy and will help cover legal fees for family members living with you at your permanent address.

What does family legal protection cover?

Our family legal protection cover offers unlimited 24-hour access to a legal advice and debt counselling service and will pay out up to £75,000 towards the cost of pursuing civil legal proceedings associated with:

  • Personal injury claims against responsible individuals or companies
  • Actions related to nuisance or trespass on your property
  • Contract claims against people or organisations that provide you with faulty goods or services
  • Motoring prosecutions
  • Personal tax issues
  • Probate disputes.

We also offer home emergency cover and Home Key protection as optional extras for your home insurance policy.

Do I need legal cover on my home insurance?

Family legal protection isn't compulsory when taking out a home insurance policy, but it's reassuring to have legal protection in place should you ever need to make a civil claim.
