Home Contents Insurance
Why do I need it?
If you are a tenant who rents, then your landlord may not cover your contents as part of the tenancy agreement. 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 so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind.
To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you,Spire View Housing Association have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks, and Allianz Insurance plc who provide the Home Contents Insurance Scheme, a specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy.
Thistle Tenants Risks Home Contents Insurance 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.

One of Spire View Housing Association's key objectives is to ‘assist with the regeneration of the local community, including wider role activities’.

Spire View Housing Association joined fellow-members of the Glasgow and West of Scotland Forum of Housing Associations (GWSF) to launch a campaign against Welfare Reform.
The rally at Celtic Park on June 10 marked the beginning of GWSF?s campaign against Welfare Reform including the introduction of Universal Credit and Direct Payment of benefits.
The protest follows the introduction of the ?Bedroom Tax? which means a cut in the amount of housing benefit for tenants classed as having spare bedrooms.
The event was staged to highlight the engagement work local housing associations are doing to ensure the concerns and the voices of their tenants are being heard amidst the welfare debate.
GWSF is the leading membership body for community-controlled housing associations and co-operatives in west central Scotland.
Today, there are nearly 70 community-controlled housing associations and co-operatives working in local communities throughout west central Scotland.
Alan Benson, Director of Milnbank Housing Association who chaired the meeting said: ?The bedroom tax is an unjust tax and is having a crippling impact on some of the most vulnerable people across our community. However it is just the start of a raft of welfare reforms which we believe could destroy decades of successful regeneration policy and empowerment across the community. The rally itself allowed us to join forces with fellow housing associations across Glasgow and the west of Scotland and launch a campaign against these reforms. It is vital that the voice of our tenants is heard amidst the current debate and we will continue to engage with the government and other bodies to ensure the interests of our community are being considered.?
