UPVC Double Glazing Handle and Key for Home Insurance Dartford Bexley
Don’t forget to lock your UPVC Double Glazed window handles and door locks with a key or it could invalidate your home insurance cover?
I have been informed by Direct Line insurance in relation to home and contents insurance that as part of the insurance clause and restrictions, all windows must be locked with a key.
Failing to remove any window keys from the locked window would also invalidate your insurance.
So I thought I would pass on this information to my customers and remind you to lock all your windows and remove all window keys, as these security clauses may apply to other home insurances so therefore you may not be covered for theft.
I have found that there are some pretty onerous conditions concerning alarms and locks.
Beware that when you go out that you ensure all the security measures are in place or you will have no cover for theft.
This means that if you lock your windows but fail to remove the keys or leave the key in a position where it is visible from outside you are not covered for theft!
Door Locks required to validate your insurance:
The final exit door secured by a 5 lever mortice deadlock or a rim automatic deadlock or an integral multi-point locking system
All external sliding patio doors secured by key operated bolts or an integral multi-point locking system
All doors on domestic outbuildings and garages secured by key operated security device
Window Locks required to validate your insurance:
All ground floor, basement and accessible upper floor opening windows secured by key operated window locks except those occupied bedrooms at night
All windows must be locked with a key, all window keys must be removed and not visible from the outside.
