We know that the things you own are a huge part of your life. That’s why we offer a contents insurance scheme in partnership with Allianz Insurance to help you protect your possessions.
Fires, floods and theft can happen to anyone, and it’s your responsibility to make sure that your belongings are protected if something goes wrong. Having insurance in place gives you peace of mind that you are covered if the worst were to happen.
In partnership with Allianz Insurance, we offer our tenants contents insurance that covers your furniture, possessions, decorations and electrical goods, all in one policy. The policy is set at an affordable rate, and you can pay the cost at a pace that suits you – fortnightly, monthly or annually – using direct debit, at a post office or whatever payment method suits you.
This special insurance deal also covers other parts of your home, like external locks (if your keys are lost or stolen) and even the contents of your freezer!
Why do I need it?
We do not cover your contents as part of your tenancy agreement, so 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, so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind should the worst happen.
