Tenants Content Insurance

Posted on by Nigel

Contents Insurance

If you rent don’t assume your landlord will cover your contents insurance. Nearly HALF of all tenants don’t have it. If you’re one of them, get it NOW – if not, you’d have to foot the bill if something happens. No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your personal possessions could be stolen, damaged or broken.

Tenants only need contents, NOT building insurance.

Tenants’ contents insurance is designed to protect your possessions from flood and fire damage as well as theft. It usually covers the items that will fall out if you turn your home upside down.

Generally, a contents policy covers:

·         your clothes and jewellery

·         any gadgets, appliances and electronics

·         books, CDs & DVDs

·         your own furniture and soft furnishings (curtains, towels etc.)

·         cutlery and crockery

·         antiques and family heirlooms

·         your bicycle

 

No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your personal possessions could be stolen, damaged or broken.

To give you peace of mind, contents insurance ensures that, should the worst come to the worst and your personal possessions are damaged or stolen, you’ll have the means to cover and recoup the cost.
