As your housing association, we are responsible for the structure of your rented home through our building insurance.
We are not responsible for the insurance of your personal belongings or contents within your home so if you are a tenant, it’s a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for in order to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.
Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen.
To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you, we have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks and Great Lakes Insurance UK Limited, who provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme, a Tenants Contents Insurance policy designed for tenants living in social housing.
The My Home Contents Insurance Scheme can offer you insurance for the contents of your home including cover for items such as furniture, carpets, curtains, clothes, bedding, electrical items, jewellery, pictures and ornaments.
