Do you need tenants Insurance?

Many people take out home insurance to protect their building and/or contents when they own a home. But did you know that you can also take out insurance for your home when you rent?

If you take out tenants insurance, you can generally choose between covering your liability for the landlord’s fixtures and fittings, your own contents, or a policy which covers both.

Your landlord or letting agent must not state that you have to take out contents cover for your own belongings, however, many tenants choose to for their own peace of mind.

We work in partnership with HomeLet to provide specialist insurance to tenants, with policies that can be tailored to your needs.

HomeLet have 30 years’ experience of serving the lettings market with specialist insurance products. Both HomeLet and Rentshield Direct are trading names of Barbon Insurance Group Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
