WHAT'S LEGAL EXPENSES COVER?

Legal expenses cover, also known as family legal protection, is a type of insurance you can buy alongside your home insurance. It’ll protect you against the costs of being sued, or of making a claim against someone.

 

It’s not compulsory when taking out home insurance, but it’s a standard feature with many policies, and available as an optional extra on others.
