More than one in ten Brits (16%) consider that home maintenance is covered under their home insurance policy, according to new research from Legal & General’s general insurance business as part of its Home Care and Repair Report.

The research revealed that the majority of Brits (94%) do recognise the importance of home maintenance. Three quarters (75%) said that they carry out maintenance checks in their home at least once a year or more.  However, not everyone is on top of their home care, as 15% of the population never carry out any home maintenance checks and 8% are delaying basic home maintenance repairs because they feel they are too expensive to fix.
