Home contents insurance

Why do I need it?
All homes owned by Stonewater (except for leasehold properties where the cover is provided by any management agent in place) are covered by buildings insurance as standard, which is arranged and paid for by Stonewater.

This covers damage to the structure, fixtures and fittings inside all our homes. It doesn’t cover damage to any contents, however this is caused - for example, damage by flood from a burst pipe or a fire.

It’s a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for in order to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.
Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen, so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind.

To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you, the National Housing Federation has teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, and Allianz Insurance plc who provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme, a specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy.

This can offer you insurance for the contents of your home including cover for items such as furniture, carpets, curtains, clothes, bedding, electrical items, jewellery, pictures and ornaments.
