Home insurance customers considering a policy from Nationwide are set to see an increase in features this week.

The building society has announced that buildings and contents cover are to be enhanced from Wednesday, with the allowance for replacement locks and keys being increased.

Among the new features is cover for access by emergency services, while contents cover will allow up to £500 for garden plants.

Director of insurance Robin Bailey said: "We are delighted to be increasing the extent of cover available through our buildings and contents insurance, making Nationwide an even better choice for our customers," adding that the current economic conditions could mean that Home insurance is "more important than ever".

Last week, Halifax warned that cover for garden equipment is particularly relevant during summer months.

The bank recorded an increase in theft of 63 per cent during April and September last year, costing the average victim £433.
