Contents Insurance

It is really important to take out home contents insurance to cover your possessions against fire, theft and other risks, such as accidental damage. If something happens to destroy or damage your possessions, it can cost tens of thousands of pounds to replace them.

What is home contents insurance?

Home contents insurance covers you against loss, theft  or damage to your personal and home possessions. It can also cover you if you take items out of the home, on holiday, for example.

The insurance covers your own possessions and those of close family members living with you. It may not cover the possessions of anyone staying with you temporarily.

You don’t have to take out home contents insurance. However, it’s a good idea to do so because if any of your contents are lost, stolen or damaged you will have to pay to replace them.
