While Housing Solutions insures the building you live in, it is your responsibility – and in your tenancy agreement – to insure your personal possessions. Home contents insurance offers protection for your possessions if they’re stolen or damaged. Whilst it isn’t compulsory, it will give you peace of mind to know you’re covered should the worst happen.

Whatever type of property you live in, your furniture and possessions can add up to a tidy sum should you need to replace them.  That’s why it’s always a good idea to have home contents insurance to protect you from the loss of, or damage to, the things that belong to you. That way you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the loss of your items won’t leave you out of pocket.

Here in the UK we’ve suffered from some very cold and wet winters. When temperatures drop, it’s not unusual for pipes to burst. Likewise, flooding or heavy storms can have devastating effects on your home. Either way, water damage can ruin your possessions so it’s important to make sure they’re adequately covered.

All our tenants and residents are eligible to apply for home contents insurance through The My Home Contents Insurance Scheme.
