Insurance FAQs

I have a LV= Home Insurance policy. Am I covered for damage caused by water leaking?

Contents insurance will cover damage caused to your items, such as sofas and carpets, by a leak from a fixed tank, appliance or pipe.

Under our buildings insurance we provide cover for damage caused to your home by water leaking, again, from any fixed tank, appliance or pipe. We'll also pay up to £5,000 or £10,000 on Home Plus (no cover is provided on Essentials) for the cost of removing and replacing any part of the structure of your home to find the source of a water leak so repairs can be carried out.

What to do if there's a leak in your home

For full terms and exclusions please refer to your policy documents.
