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 pursuing 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.
