This week: insurance charges, building surveys and online grocery shopping
In today's podcast, paying premiums to insure your car or home are not the only thing you'll need to stump up for when taking out cover. Almost all insurers will hit you with a fee for changing the slightest details on your policies, such as your name, address, or even just setting up your policy. Our latest research uncovers the worst offenders.
Elsewhere, we give you the lowdown on building surveys. When you buy a new property, you have to make sure there aren't any hidden problems, so getting a thorough survey to uncover possible issues is a vital, yet expensive, necessity. We provide some top tips to help you make the most out of a building survey.
And in our money tip this week, watch out for small versions of the products you order when you shop online.
