Apply for contents insurance

It is important that tenants insure their belongings against damage. The London Borough of Sutton administers a home contents insurance scheme that is open to SHP tenants.

Benefits include:

  • premiums are paid weekly with your rent
  • no excess
  • cover for fire, theft, water damage & other household risks
  • covers freezer content, theft and loss of keys
  • no minimum security requirements
  • no long term commitment - you literally 'pay as you go'
  • optional extensions available, for example: extended accidental damage, wheelchair/mobility scooters, hearing aids, personal possessions (away from home) and sheds, garages and greenhouses.

How to apply
