"We had converted the garage into an office, we even had business visitors from time to time, so we knew that a normal home insurance policy would be unlikely to cover us."

It is not just about making sure that you have cover in force for your home workers office furniture, PC's or other home office business equipment. If you receive business visitors, you will need to consider public liability insurance, in case a visitor hurts themselves while on your business premises. Above all, it pays to make sure that your insurance company knows the precise nature of your homeworking activities and has suitably endorsed your home insurance policy to cover you while you are working from home.
