What is home insurance?

Home insurance provides financial protection to you in the event of something happening to your property and/or belongings. 

Depending on your policy you might be covered for theft, fire, flood, loss, accidental damage and more.

There are two types of home insurance:

  • Buildings Insurance

  • Contents Insurance

How you can get contents insurance

No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen.

We offer all our customers, tenants and leaseholders, a chance to insure their contents and personal possessions in an easy and affordable way through the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme.

It’s a good idea to look into what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for, to help you decide whether you think you need one.

My Home can insure items such as furniture, carpets, curtains, clothes, bedding, electrical items, jewellery, pictures and ornaments. This covers your belongings from fire, theft, storm, burst pipes, flood and other risks.
