Why do I need it?

Grampian Housing Association does not cover your home contents as part of the Tenancy Agreement.  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 the one you need.
 
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.
 
Grampian Housing Association has teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks and Ageas Insurance Limited who provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme, a specialist tenants contents insurance policy.
 
This 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.
