I’m considering taking part in a house swap. What do I need to know about my insurance rates and protection before stepping forward with this?

Before taking part in a house swap, it is important for you to examine your policy. Many policies do not cover your property if you do not inform your provider about the swap. This can be a serious risk as many homeowners return from a house swap with sizable damage done to their properties by the swap partner. Be sure that your policies are up-to-date before taking part in this and ensure that there are clear guidelines in place for the future tenants of your home.
