As your housing provider we do not insure your furniture, belongings, and other personal items within your home against theft, fire, vandalism, burst pipes and other household risks. It is therefore recommended that you take out your own personal content's insurance.
My Home Insurance for housing tenants
The My Home Insurance Scheme can offer you the chance to insure the contents of your home.
The National Housing Federation has teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, who provide the My Home Contents Insurance.
- The My Home Contents Insurance Scheme is a specialist insurance scheme provided by Thistle Tenant Risks. The policy covers the contents and personal belongings for tenants in social housing against loss or damage from specific events (for example, fire, theft or escape of water).
- The My Home Scheme can cover most of your household goods and contents whilst in your home, such as furniture, TV, clothing, carpets, electrical items, and general household goods. It does not cover property used or held for business or professional purposes. Full details of the policy cover and exclusions are available on request before you apply for cover.
- The insurance also covers replacement of external locks if your keys are lost or stolen and the contents of your fridge and freezer (excludes damage caused if the electricity supplier deliberately cuts of the supply to your home).
