We are responsible for buildings insurance for our rented properties and will deal with claims if needed.
We also arrange buildings insurance for shared owners and leaseholders and you then pay the cost of this to us. The cost depends on the size of your property and you will receive a bill for this every year in April.
If you want to find out more about the buildings insurance for your home, or you need to notify us of a claim:
If you are a tenant who rents, you may wish to consider taking out home contents insurance. Cottsway does not provide content insurance as part of your tenancy agreement.
Why do I need contents insurance?
Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. No matter how careful you are, there is always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind.
To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you, we have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, and Allianz Insurance plc which provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme. This is a specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy backed by the National Housing Federation.
This 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.
