– The built surface , the qualities of the materials used and the measures of security of the dwelling also determine the cost of the premium.

As for security measures, insurers will want to know if there are windows with bars, armored or armored doors, if there is an alarm (with their detectors on the different parts of the house), and if so, if it is Connected with the police or a private surveillance service.

– If you have to give a part for a loss, do it as soon as possible , since if you delay a long time the insurer could refuse to cover the damages, even if they were insured.
