We offer some guidance on what's covered by 'simple' insurance and working out the cost of insuring your home.


We have negotiated the 'Simple household insurance scheme' as a service for tenants and do not have any involvement in administering the scheme, or receive any money from the scheme.

Any policy taken out by tenants, or members of their households, is strictly between those parties and Royal and Sun Alliance. We accept no responsibility or liability for any aspect of the scheme.
