Getsafe offers legal protection as an extension for contents insurance. You might be wondering why this is the case, as it may appear that they’re very different types of policies. But if you dig a bit deeper, you’ll see they compliment each other perfectly and offer you and your belongings a greater level of protection. Let’s get started.

We all know that contents insurance covers your belongings in your home (and even outside of it with the Personal Possessions extension). You might not even consider that damage to your household goods could have legal ramifications, but it’s more common than you think. Here are some examples of where the Legal Protection extension comes in handy.

Disagreements relating to rented homes

Disputes with landlords are unfortunately quite common. Imagine your rented home had damp walls due to a water leak or faulty heating and your landlord is refusing to fix the issue. If left unresolved, your health and the items inside your home could be at risk. However, most people don’t have loads of spare cash lying around to pay for repairs. Not only this, it isn’t typically the tenants responsibility. It’s likely that this case would have to go through the authorities, where you would require legal representation – which may not always be cheap. This is where the Getsafe Legal Protection extension comes to your rescue.

Cover for a variety of situations in life

Many of the protections offered by a legal add-on don’t directly relate to your home, which is actually a huge benefit. By extending your contents policy with legal cover, you’ve taken care of more of life’s unexpected turns with a single policy.

For example, you may get into a dispute at work, such as being unfairly dismissed or receiving unequal pay. As with the previous example, you would probably need legal insurance to defend your rights. This is covered by your Getsafe Legal Protection extension. There are many other examples, such as being a victim of clinical negligence. Basically, if you need legal support, your extension covers you.
