It is a good idea to take out home contents insurance to cover your personal belongings against flood, fire, theft and accidental damage.

If something happens to destroy or damage your belongings, it can cost a lot of money to replace these items, some of which may be essential.

The home contents insurance scheme we recommend is designed especially for our tenants.  It is low cost and also covers any rented goods you may own.

The importance of home contents insurance

As your landlord, we insure the structure and fittings of your home and you are responsible for insuring all your contents and personal belongings.

The home contents insurance scheme we recommend is low cost and offers these benefits:

  • A friendly claims service to make sure you are properly looked after.
  • No excess, which means you don’t need to pay towards the cost of the claim.
  • Contents, except clothing and linen, replaced as new.
  • All rented goods included.

If you have rented goods, some stores make you take out insurance for each item, which is costly and only covers that item against a claim.

The policy we recommend covers all rented goods alongside all your other personal belongings, which means that it is more cost effective to take the one policy and all items are covered if there is a flood, fire, theft etc.
