We recommend that all tenants apply for 'Simple' contents insurance, a home contents insurance scheme we've negotiated with Royal and Sun Alliance.

It is designed specifically for our tenants and includes:

  • no hidden costs - what you see is what you pay
  • cover for internal fixtures you have installed if damaged by cause covered by the policy
  • cover for theft and loss of keys
  • no excess payment required if you claim
  • new for old cover (except clothing and household linen where an allowance for wear and tear is deducted)
  • low minimum sum insured

Get a more detailed breakdown of what's covered by 'Simple insurance'.

You can also work out the cost of insuring your home.
