Home Contents Insurance
Under the terms of your agreement or lease, you are responsible for your own contents and for insuring them for loss or damage. Always do your research when looking for the right policy for you.
Why do I need it?
Your Housing Group agreement or lease does not cover your home contents so it is always advisable do your research when looking for the right policy for you.
Contents insurance is designed to help you to 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.
