Home running costs
While it might not be a topic we like to consider, it's important to understand the protection you should have in place to cover fire, flood, subsidence or storm damage.
Home running costs, such as Council Tax, energy bills, home insurance and broadband can add up to £100s a month, so you'll need to factor then in when you are looking to buy or rent a new home. You can find everything you need at our dedicated Home running costs page.
