Are you are isolating in another property, leaving your property vacant? Properties left vacant across Central London are more vulnerable to burglars. Seven out of ten burglaries are committed when no-one is home and with the lockdown keeping Prime Central London quieter, vacant properties will be at greater risk.
There are other increased risks from burst pipes, fires and other day-to-day maintenance issues occurring in empty homes. All of these result in a need to claim on your home insurance. In most cases your insurer will require that your home is not left unoccupied for more than 30 days at a time (but this can be as little as two weeks). You may find that if you breach this covenant, then you are invalidating your property insurance.
