We cover the insurance for the building you live in, but not the contents.

As part of your tenancy agreement we strongly recommend that your home contents are insured, in case of fire, theft or damage. 

While many people often hope that nothing will happen to their belongings, sometimes things can go wrong unexpectedly, and it can cost a lot of money to replace lost or damaged household items. We can help you to get home contents insurance at a price that is affordable.

With a special scheme called Crystal, arranged in conjunction with Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing and Thistle Tenant Risks, our tenants and residents can protect their belongings and gain peace of mind knowing if the unexpected happens they have cover. Here are some examples of what this insurance covers:

  • Accidental damage to home entertainment equipment
  • Third party liability
  • Accidental breakage of mirrors, glass, hobs
  • Loss or theft of keys
  • Freezer contents
  • Some Tenants Liability (Includes cover for some damage to the landlord’s fixtures & fittings for which the tenant is legally responsible)
  • Accidental damage to fixed glass in windows & doors up to 20% of the sum insured
  • Tenants own home improvements e.g. decorating up to £2,000
  • Loss or theft of keys
