Buildings insurance

If you rent your home from us then we are responsible for your buildings insurance.

As a leaseholder or Shared Owner your buildings insurance is paid for through your service charges. You can find out more in the insurance for homeowners section.

Contents insurance

Newlon does not insure your furniture, belongings and other personal items within your home against theft, fire, vandalism, burst pipes and other household risks, so we highly recommend you get your own contents insurance.

My Home contents insurance is a special insurance scheme provided by the National Housing Federation in conjunction with Thistle Tenant Risks and Allianz Insurance plc, available for all residents living in social and affordable housing.

This insurance will cover most of your household contents, including items such as furniture, carpets, curtains, clothes, bedding, electrical items, jewellery, pictures and ornaments. It also includes replacement of external locks if your keys are lost or stolen. In addition there is cover for personal liability and decorations which you may be responsible for under your tenancy agreement.

You can find out more at www.thistlemyhome.co.uk, or by calling 0345 450 7288.
