Charcolonline has launched a household insurance broking service, providing access to household building and contents insurance cover from nine insurers.

The panel includes Legal & General, Allianz Cornhill, Fortis, Groupama and Lloyd's. Several new additions to the portal are also being signed up.

The household insurance service is integrated into Charcol's existing mortgage site, which has been developed in association with independent insurance broker Heath Lambert Group.

It allows users to compare prices and cover from the nine insurers.
