We do not insure the contents of your home.
If your contents are destroyed or damaged (eg by theft, fire or flooding) and you do not have insurance cover you will have to pay to replace them. Therefore we strongly advise that you arrange your own home contents insurance to cover your possessions.
You can arrange the insurance through us and have the premium collected with your rent for as little as 90p a week or 40p for those aged 60 and over. Our insurance scheme is provided by Aviva and includes accidental damage cover at no extra cost.
