Home contents insurance

We can arrange low cost home contents insurance through Allianz Insurance plc specifically for Stockport Homes’ tenants.

Prices start from £1.09 a week (for tenants aged under 55) for a £9,000 sum insured, and just 72p a week (for tenants aged 55 and over), for a £6,000 sum insured. For tenants who live in sheltered accommodation prices start from 48p a week (for a £4,000 sum insured).

We encourage all of Stockport Homes’ tenants to take out insurance to protect your furniture, belongings and decorations against fire, theft, water damage and other risks. It is your responsibility as the tenant to arrange your own home contents insurance, as we only insure the building itself. 

You can apply for home contents insurance online by filling in the form below and pressing the SUBMIT button or print the form out and return it completed to the address detailed on the final page.
