Burglary Insurance

Burglary Insurance


What Does Burglary Insurance Mean?

This insurance policy provides cover against loss or damage by burglary or house breaking

(ie theft following an actual forcible and violent entry of and/or exit from the premises) in

respect of contents of offices, warehouses, shops etc and cash in safe or strong room and

also damage caused to the premises.

Burglary means when someone  forcefully or unlawfully enters someone else’s property – even if they did not steal anything.


Important to know: The terms “burglary” , “theft” and ”robbery” are often used interchangeably but they are actually very different things when it comes to insurance policy. Even though they involve some sort of illegal entry, and the force usage, the actual differentiator is who or what that force is used on.
