Over a third of people in Cavan and Monaghan have difficulty in finding affordable home insurance.
That’s according to figures released by AA Ireland.
A recent report from the CSO shows that the cost of home insurance has increased by 5.9% in the last 12 months.
AA Ireland carried out a survey of 7,000 people and found that around 33% of Irish home owners have experienced difficulty in finding home insurance at an affordable price.
In Cavan and Monaghan that figure is slightly higher, and stands at around 35%.
Barry Aldworth from AA Ireland says one of the reasons for the increase in home insurance is because people over value their property.
