Our landlord contents insurance can cover contents from £5,000 to £50,000 depending on your needs and value of contents, to protect things like your fridge, freezer, sofa and curtains.
Protect your rental property items against theft or attempted theft, accidental damage, malicious damage or vandalism though our landlord contents cover. Just note that you’re not covered if it’s your tenants that do the damage – if you’re concerned you’ll need to add extra malicious damage cover to your policy for this.
Protect your contents in the event of fire, smoke, explosion, lightning, earthquake or storm, floods, falling trees, ground movement, subsidence or landslip, collision by an animal or vehicle, and even things dropping from the sky.

Landlords contents insurance is cover for what’s inside your rental property.
Generally, if you turned your property upside down and shook it, everything that would fall out counts as the contents (so the sofa, but not the kitchen units). With contents insurance you can cover the cost of replacing things like the property’s furniture and appliances.
As a landlord you’ll need to cover anything that belongs to you in the property - and your tenants will need their own contents insurance to cover their own belongings.
Landlords contents insurance covers damage, rather than gradual wear and tear over time.
Contents insurance isn’t compulsory, but replacing things like carpets can be a big expense versus what you’ll pay for an insurance policy. It’s worth thinking through what you’d do in a worst case scenario and weighing up the risks and costs.
Yes, with Simple you can take out a contents insurance policy on its own, and a buildings insurance policy on its own.
You can get a quote online, or call to talk through your insurance needs. You’ll be asked about your contents, including any particularly expensive or high value items. Have a think about what’s in your property that you’ll need to cover – and what it would realistically cost to replace - before you get a quote.
Any contents in your rental property that come with the house – so if you rent your property furnished things like beds or sofas, lamps and light shades, fridges, freezers and washing machines. It’s tempting to think if you’re renting unfurnished you don’t need contents insurance, but just make sure you’ve calculated the costs of things like carpets and curtains, so you know you’d be able to replace them from your own pocket if they were all damaged.
Simple’s landlord contents insurance only covers your contents – so make sure your tenants know they’ll need their own insurance for their own belongings.
