You are probably aware of whether the area or even the street you live in is a high theft area! Homes in wealthy areas are often targeted more than those deprived areas due to the value of the items they are likely to contain, especially in the run-up to Christmas. And be aware that having a luxury car on your drive can make your home – as well as the car itself – a target.

There are a lot of statistics available on the Government’s data hub where you can look up data on different types of crime where you live.  You can also get specific crime statistics – including burglary – here.

Note: At Homeprotect we use a range of data when calculating premiums and our assessment of risk may vary from that you can find in Government data when calculating premiums online.
