Home contents insurance
Protection for personal belongings in your home.
Your rent payment doesn’t include insurance cover for personal belongings, furniture or carpets if they are damaged or stolen.
Replacing the contents of your home could prove very expensive, so you should consider taking out home contents insurance.
Buying tenant’s content insurance means your personal items are insured against events including:
- water damage
You can also add accidental damage cover as an optional extra.
Salix Homes tenants’ insurance scheme
We work with one of the UK’s largest insurers to offer our customers home contents insurance that can be paid in weekly installments. All Salix Homes tenants and leaseholders can apply.
The policy includes:
- no excess – nothing to pay when you make a claim
- contents replaced as new (except for clothing and household linen)
- cover for goods rented from weekly payment stores
We cannot guarantee that this scheme provides the cheapest insurance cover available, or that it provides the widest cover, so you are recommended to seek alternative quotations and choose the cover that best suits your needs.
