Tenants’ contents insurance, or renters’ insurance, is another way of describing home contents insurance.
As well as covering your personal possessions, contents policies often include cover designed for people renting:
- options to suit you if you live in a shared house or flat
- tenants’ liability cover, which typically covers certain types of damage to your landlord’s fixtures and fittings.
- alternative accommodation cover, paying for a place to stay during repairs to the property after a fire or flood
All policies are different, so make sure you check exactly what’s covered.
