Using price comparison sites to buy household insurance
How can you get the best deal if you’re using a comparison site to buy insurance?
Millions of us use price comparison sites to compare insurance policies before we buy. It’s made comparing insurance much quicker and can save you money, but there is a danger that you may end up with the wrong insurance policy or with one that doesn’t do what you expected it to. I’ve bought my household insurance through a price comparison site and by using a broker (currently, it’s been arranged by a broker). Here’s what you should bear in mind.
What happens if I don't have a will? Why you should have a will.
It's important to have a will as it's the only way you can say who should inherit
A will is just a document that says what you’d like to happen to your possessions and money after you die, and who should look after your children. It can be short and simple or lengthy and detailed and include information things such as the type of funeral you’d like. You don’t need to use a solicitor for it to be legal – you can write it on a scrap of paper – although most people do use professional help.
Why should I have a will? Do you need a will if you're single?
If you’re not married or in a relationship and you don’t have children, are you OK without a will?
If you're not married or in a civil partnership, you might not think you need a will. Lots of people sort out their wills when they get married or have children. But it might be worth having one, especially if you're in a relationship but not married or in a civil partnership.
