Home Contents Insurance

DGHP can help our tenants obtain home contents insurance easily and at a price that is affordable.  While many people often hope that nothing will happen to their belongings, sometimes things can go wrong unexpectedly.

With a special scheme arranged and administered by Thistle Tenant Risks, DGHP tenants can protect their belongings and gain peace of mind knowing if the unexpected happens they have cover.

Fire, theft, flooding…are you insured?

Thistle Tenant Risks provide affordable hassle-free insurance premiums which you can even pay-as-you-go. These policies are specifically designd for DGHP tenants and offer peace of mind that in an unprecedented situation, your home contents are covered for a price that suits you too.

How much will the insurance cost?
