Home Contents Insurance
Make sure you are covered for the unexpected by taking out Home Contents Insurance
We insure all of our properties but this only covers the building, fixtures and fittings, glass in windows and external doors and fixed sanitary ware. It’s your responsibility to organise Home Contents Insurance - this covers furniture, floor coverings, internal decoration and personal belongings.
Insure the contents of your home at an affordable rate
Link tenants can arrange for insurance cover for the contents of their home at an affordable rate. The cover has been designed to help tenants and residents insure most of their belongings and covers against fire, theft, flood, water damage and other household risks.
More than 500 of our tenants have taken out home contents cover under our scheme.
How much does it cost?
The premiums start from £1.44 fortnightly (for tenants aged under 55) for a £9,000 sum insured; £1.11 fortnightly (for tenants aged 55 and over); for a £6,000 sum insured and just 90p a fortnight for tenants in sheltered housing (for a £4,000 sum insured).
Tenants and residents also have the option to include extended accidental damage cover, cover for wheelchairs/mobility scooters and hearing aids as well as for personal possessions away from the home (for an additional premium).
How do I apply?
If you have no home contents insurance you can apply for cover by calling Thistle Tenant Risks on 0345 450 7286 (calls may be recorded for training purposes), or visit its website where you can request further information or for a member of the Thistle Tenant Risks Team to call you.
Although Link tries to promote the best available services for our tenants, it is advisable to check with other companies to make sure that you are getting the best deal. If you do find a better deal elsewhere please let us know so we can share this with others.
