Paymentshield offers free home emergency and legal expenses cover

Paymentshield has added home emergency cover and legal expenses cover to its building and contents insurance products.

Both additions are free to all new policy holders for the first 12 months from the policy start date.

Home emergency covers the repair of damage caused to a clients home following a sudden event which makes the property unsafe, insecure or uninhabitable, by sending a qualified workman plus the provision of overnight accommodation if required.

Legal expenses cover the cost of negotiating or defending clients legal rights, such as disputes arising from contract of employment or property matters.
