High risk occupation home insurance

If you work from home, have regular visitors, or you work overnight, home insurance can be tricky

Some occupations cause insurance companies to worry about the increased risk to the security of your home and your belongings. These occupations tend to either involve you working at home, having regular visitors to the property or if you go out to work at night leaving the property empty and vulnerable to burglars.

These so-called 'hard-to-insure' occupations include childminders, musicians, pop stars, private tutors and jewellers. If you slot into one of these categories you may have experienced long phone calls with insurance companies, followed by reading stringent terms and conditions on your policy and no doubt there has been a hefty premium to pay.
