Garden security warning from home insurance firm

Neglecting garden security in the summer months could result in a costly home insurance claim, the Cheshire Building Society has warned. According to research conducted by the home insurance provider, around one third of all insurance claims occur during the summer months. Much of the glut of summer claims is due to people failing to secure their garden properly, said Karen Torson, partnerships business manager at Cheshire Building Society. She added: "During the summer months there tends to be an increase in the number of garden thefts as people get their gardens into shape. "Thieves will seize anything they can sell on including patio furniture, ornaments, electrical equipment such as lawnmowers and pressure washers and expensive plants and shrubs." The Cheshire recommends that homeowners looking to avoid making a costly claim on their insurance policy ensure that all garden tools equipment, including lawnmowers, are locked away.
