Why do you need home contents insurance?
Home contents insurance is designed to help protect your belongings. No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen. Home contents insurance can help give peace of mind. For example, if there is a flood caused by a tank that Hastoe is responsible for repairing, you would still need to pay for any damaged carpets and belongings. Home contents insurance can cover these costs for you.
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. This will help you make a decision about whether you need one.
