    What risks are associated to your house and how can you protect yourself from those?

    We recommend that you take the utmost care not only in the streets but also in the apartment. Always close the door with double turn and check that the windows are closed when you leave at night.

    To protect against any risk, we recommend you to hire an insurance policy covering damages caused by theft or assault in which you would be the victim outside of your house.

    Likewise we recommend that you hire insurance that covers theft, flood and fire inside your home.

    We have established a collaboration agreement with the insurer Catalana Occidente. For terms and conditions of insurance policies, contact your ShBarcelona counselor.
