Are you prepared if the worst was to happen?

Are you prepared if the worst was to happen? Did you know that you are not covered for damage of your home contents as part of your tenancy with us? 

Crystal home contents insurance can help 

The Crystal Contents insurance Scheme brings you peace of mind knowing that if the worst was to happen you would be able to replace your belongings and personal possessions. 

Not only will the policy cover your home contents against the risk of Fire, Flood, Theft, Water and Storm damage but it will also protect you against those events that as a tenant you may be legally responsible for, such as damage to external glazing and damage to your landlord’s fixtures and fittings.

Some of the benefits of the Crystal Scheme are: 

  • Flexible regular pay-as-you-go payment options
  • No fuss, quick and easy to apply
  • No excess (you don’t pay the first part of the claim)
  • No administration or cancellation fees

You can also get optional extended accidental damage cover, personal possessions (items away from the home), wheelchairs, mobility scooters, hearing aids cover and structure cover for huts, garages and greenhouses can be included for an additional premium.

To find out more or to apply for cover please call 0345 450 7286 or email

Terms and conditions, limits and exclusions apply. A full policy wording is available on request.
