Home contents insurance

Former Network Homes customers

If you're a former Network Homes customer (London and Hertfordshire), you can find more information and apply for home contents insurance here.

Why do I need it?

Did you know that Sovereign insures the building in which you live, but we don’t insure your personal belongings and home contents? It’s a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for in order to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.

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.

To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you, Sovereign have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, and Great Lakes Insurance UK Limited who provide the My Home Contents Insurance Scheme, a Tenants Contents Insurance policy designed for tenants living in social housing.

The My Home Contents Insurance 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.

How do you get further information?

Some of the benefits:

  • No need to change the locks - There are no minimum property security requirements (just a lockable front door).
  • The cover is new for old - With no deductions for wear and tear (except for clothing and linen).
  • All Sovereign residents are eligible to apply - This policy is specially designed for Sovereign residents.
  • There's no excess to pay - You won’t have to fork out when you make a claim.
