Why do you need home contents insurance?
Home 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.
Hastoe insures the building you live in but we do not insure your personal belongings. Therefore, you are responsible for arranging your own home contents insurance.
It’s a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for in order to help you make a decision about whether you need one.
