What different Home & Contents products are available?

Home Insurance

A standard home insurance policy can help cover the cost of repairing or replacing your house if something unexpected causes damage, such as a strong storm, fire or lightning, and malicious damage.

Contents Insurance

Whilst home insurance covers the structure of your home, contents insurance covers the possessions inside it. In short, contents insurance can help cover household items and personal belongings if they’re, lost, stolen, or damaged. This can include things such as furniture, electronics, tools, and jewellery.

Landlord Insurance

Landlord insurance is designed for homeowners renting out their property to tenants. Similar to home insurance, a typical policy can include cover for damage to the property from storms, fire, lightning, theft, and malicious damage. You may be able to add-on contents cover also, helping to cover the cost of replacing locks or any stolen or damaged contents provided for the tenant.

Contents Insurance For Renters

If you’re renting and you’d like to take out cover for your possessions, a contents insurance policy for renters could give you that much needed peace of mind. This insurance can help to cover the repair or replacement cost of certain valuables if they’re damaged by storm, fire, theft, malicious damage, or escape of liquid (such as a burst pipe).
