Tenant's contents & liability insurance

Introduction

Using the last 25 years of experience through Homelet, we're able to offer a great contents insurance policy to applicants. This includes:

  • £50,000 of cover for an applicant's own contents (on a new-for-old basis, but we sometimes allow for the applicant to arrange their own replacements).
  • £10,000 of tenancy liability cover, for accidentally damage to the landlords possessions, fixtures and fittings.

What else is covered by our contents insurance?

Here are some additional things that are covered in your policy by default.

  • Transferable between properties, even if you buy your own home.
  • We'll increase cover by 10% whilst your celebrating something special.
  • Additional £1000 cover for your family when they're studying away from home.
  • Plants, trees and shrubs in your garden.
  • Contents of your shed or outbuilding.
  • Damage to interior decorations.
  • Pedal cycles worth up to £500, within the boundaries of your home.
