My Home Contents Insurance Scheme

Home Contents Insurance


Why do I need it?

As a Saxon Weald tenant, you are responsible for arranging and purchasing contents insurance to cover belongings in your home.


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, Saxon Weald have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, and Great Lakes Insurance UK Ltd who provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme; a specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy designed for tenants living in social housing..


The My Home Contents Insurance Scheme 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.
