Contents insurance

Home contents insurance may seem complicated, and many people think they cannot afford it.  But we have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks and Allianz Insurance plc to offer our tenants and leaseholder the chance to insure their home contents and belongings through the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme

Tai Calon Community Housing are not responsible for your home contents and belongings, this is your responsibility.  You should protect your home contents and belongings, things like, clothes, furniture, TV’s, carpets even your jewellery.

My Home Contents Insurance Scheme covers your home contents against, fire, theft, flood, water damage and much more.

Some of the benefits:

  • All tenants and leaseholders are eligible to apply
  • Low Sums insured – so you aren’t paying for cover you don’t need
  • You can pay fortnightly or monthly by cash at a payzone or post office, monthly by direct debit or annually by cheque, debit/credit card
  • There’s no Excess to pay if you make a claim
  • No minimum security requirements (you don’t need special door or window locks)
  • Optional extensions are available for an additional premium, such as:
  • Personal possessions (cover for items away from the home)
  • Wheelchairs and Mobility Scooters
  • Hearing Aids
  • Structure cover for sheds, garages and greenhouses
