Holiday home insurance specialists Boshers are highlighting the importance of property owners making regular checks on their homes.

The advice comes with more severe weather forecast and with the first school half term of the year bringing visitors in to those areas already affected by extreme wind and flooding.

The firm has issued guidance including checking roofs, guttering and downpipes along with ensuring surrounding trees are monitored for potential damage. Mark Lavington, Director at Boshers Ltd explained; “With many holiday home owners living away from their properties it is vital that they are regularly checked in order to proactively deal with any potential damage from the weather. Identifying issues and damage to property early can make a massive difference in the cost and speed of repair.”

Mark added “The February half term has always been the first major tourism window in the calendar and we are very keen to support the message that the country is open for business.  We want to ensure that holiday home owners are fully prepared to give their guests the warm welcome they always do.”
