Burglary risk - August is the month that burglary stats spike,don't become a victim.

Burglary risk is something property owners all need to be vigilant about, as break-ins are costly and inconvenient.

Unfortunately as the majority of the UK get ready to take some well earned rest and enjoy the long awaited heatwave August see's the biggest spike in burglary figures, according to the experts at MoneySuperMarket.

This is because of property owners leaving doors and windows open to cool the house down – but doing so could invalidate your home insurance policy. 

This is due to a clause called “contributory negligence” which means your home isn’t covered under insurance if you leave it insecure.

“The summer months offer a unique window of opportunity for burglars,” said Kevin Pratt, consumer affairs expert at MoneySuperMarket.

“That makes it crucial to be extra vigilant, and to take the necessary steps to keep burglars at bay.

“It’s vital to do what you can to boost security – such as installing CCTV, fitting and using robust locks on doors and windows, and installing an approved burglar alarm.”
