Home contents insurance

Home contents insurance

Accidents happen from time to time, so it’s good to make sure you’re covered. As your landlord we insure the building but not the contents. So, for example, if there was a leak at your home, we would repair the ceiling but if it had leaked through you would need contents insurance to cover the cost of any carpets or personal items that were damaged.

From 40p per week

We have negotiated an excellent price for home contents insurance with Aviva Insurance. It covers your household items in the event of fire, burst pipes, storm, theft and other disasters. You can pay for this contents insurance from as a little as 40p a week.

Please read our home content insurance [PDF] for more information and to see what’s covered and what’s not.
