We urge all our customers to take out home contents insurance. Some people mistakenly believe that their furniture and personal belongings are automatically covered by Rykneld Homes. This is not the case.
Home contents insurance can give you peace of mind that your belongings are insured against events such as fire, theft or water damage. If you were to have a burst pipe in your home which damaged your belongings, it would be your responsibility to replace them and so it is important to be covered.
Insurance is available from many different sources, including insurance companies, insurance brokers and banks. You have the option of visiting a price comparison website before making a decision.
