Does a fence affect my home insurance?

Does a fence affect my home insurance?

In most cases, No!

A fence correctly installed with a permit and relevant engineering would not affect insurance.
Although to deter burglars, it is worth considering the erection of secure boundary fences around your property. With a variety of fences and gates to choose from, you can achieve privacy and security without compromising the character and feel of a welcoming home. A fence that has a lockable gate, restricting access to the property, and adding extra security to your property may improve your insurance policy. This is only a guide and it is advised to contact your Home Insurance provider to discuss this with them.
Locking gates can increase security

If your fence is built in such a way that you have a fence gate, as with all other points of entry, make sure your gate is secured by a lock.
