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.
Newlon does not insure your furniture, belongings and other personal items within your home against theft, fire, vandalism, burst pipes and other household risks. 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, Newlon Housing Trust have 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 insurance will cover 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.
