“Why do I need it?”

If you are a tenant who rents with Inquilab, we do not cover contents as part of your tenancy agreement. It’s a good idea to consider what a Home Contents Insurance policy would cover in order to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.

Contents insurance is designed to help 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.

To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you, Inquilab Housing Association have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, and Allianz Insurance plc who provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme, a specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy.

The My Home Contents Insurance Scheme can offer you insurance for the contents of your home including cover for items such as furniture, carpets, curtains, clothes, bedding, electrical items, jewellery, pictures and ornaments.

Some examples of the types of risk your contents will be insured against are fire, theft, vandalism and water damage.

Optional Extras:

In addition to your standard contents cover, you have the option to add any of the following additional covers at an extra cost:

  • Extended accidental cover
  • Personal possessions cover (cover away from the home)
  • Cover for the structure of garden huts, greenhouses, and garages
  • Hearing aid cover
  • Wheelchair cover
