Note that in this report, household insurance is defined as policies sold to consumers for risks associated with their main residence protecting buildings and / or contents. As such, it excludes policies specifically for holiday and second homes, cover for buy-to-let properties owned by landlords and contents insurance specifically for students, each of which are covered in a separate series of studies for which the series prospectus can be seen here.
In a similar vein, the definition of home emergency insurance refers to policies sold to private households in order to help with one or more types of home-related problem. These include the following main risks: the malfunctioning or failure of gas boilers, gas supply pipes and gas central heating systems; problems associated with plumbing, drainage or water supply pipes; and electrical emergencies and breakdowns apart from breakdowns related to individual household appliances (such as a problem with a washing machine).
In the case of insurers (including those defined in the research both as ‘underwriters’ and as ‘tied / multi-tied agents’), the research considers cover bundled within wider household insurance policies. Bundled cover is also the focus in the case of packaged accounts albeit for all other distributor categories, analysis of home emergency insurance is limited to stand-alone policies only.
