Urban Land & Housing Group – Tenant Tip – Are tenants covered by the owner’s contents insurance cover?
The short answer is no.
Tenants property is not covered by the insurance cover by their landlords.
It is the tenants responsilibity to arrange contents insurance cover for your belongings for fire and theft.

Majority of tenants that are moving into another property already have existing contents insurance so it is just a matter of changing your address details with your current insurer.
