S25 Physical security for homes: Guidance for insurers

  • 27 Feb 2015

With many different types of doors and windows now in use, a widening range of security devices available to secure them, and a variety of related new and developing security device standards, regulations and approval schemes to account for, this guide seeks to improve frontline underwriters’ awareness of MSS related issues in relation to typical homes.

The guidance and its related ‘model’ MSS are not intended for application to:
  • homes where living accommodation is shared with other households, eg ‘bedsits’ and homes in multiple occupation (HMOs);
  • electromechanical, electronic and code operated security devices; or
  • outbuildings, sheds and garages.
