Home contents insurance
Home contents insurance covers the loss or damage to items in your home that aren’t part of the building itself.
Why do I need it?
Home contents insurance helps to protect your possessions and the contents of your home against loss or damage from things like fire, theft or water damage.
As your landlord, we insure the building and fixtures but not your personal possessions. This is why it’s a good idea to consider whether you need contents insurance.
The best place to start is to consider what you might need to insure and which policies will cover your needs. You can then make an informed decision.
There are lots of places to compare contents insurance deals. Some insurers have special offers designed for people that are renting and people living in social and affordable housing.

Price comparison sites such as Compare the Market are a great place to start - you can apply online, compare different policies and select one that’s just right for you.
To help you decide if home contents insurance is right for you, the National Housing Federation (NHF) has teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks and Ageas Insurance Limited, which provides the My Home Contents Insurance scheme - a specialist Tenants’ Contents Insurance policy.
