Imagine that you were looking for luxurious properties, that you made an excellent investment, and that you finally bought a beautiful house in Ayia Napa, just a few meters from the ocean. But, beyond the recommendations that you receive from a licensed real estate agent, for now, know that you will not have any protection in the event of a tsunami or a flood.
For now, here are some recommendations that are always valid in the real estate industry when hiring insurance. First, remember to always prevent rather than cure when looking at investment opportunities.

Mould and mildew

Believe it or not, your home pool may have additional insurance. The coverage is aimed at safety issues for children and structural reasons. Note that the swimming pool must have a fence. Regarding its care, ensure that it is not near trees that can break their structure with the growth of their roots. And remember: properties for sale are more valuable when sold with a pool if it has not been transformed into a pond full of aquatic animals.
Trampolines and trampolines
Trampolines and trampolines are one of the most excellent entertainments for the youngest (and the oldest). Unfortunately, its misuse can lead to minor or severe accidents.
