As a Tenant, insurance isn’t always the first thing on your mind, but sometimes accidents happen.
Have you made arrangements to protect your belongings and your new property from any accidental
damage before your tenancy commences?
John Shepherd would like to ensure your experience in your new home is as stress and cost free as possible.
Tenants Contents and Liability Insurance can help protect the value of your personal belongings, support
the return of your deposit or reduce potential end of tenancy costs if you decide to purchase a Reposit and
provide you with peace of mind from move in to move out. As part of your pre-tenancy online process you will
see there is an opportunity to ‘book a call’ with our partners Goodlord.
This will enable you to receive a free no obligation quotation suitable to your personal needs at a time that
suits you. There is no payment upfront and they can arrange cover to protect you from the moment
you move in.
If you decide not to take out any protection against unforeseen risks such as fire, explosion, theft, burglary, flood,
water and accidental damage you are exposing yourself to significant potential financial loss.
Your landlord and agent will not be responsible if you fail to arrange
the correct protection suitable to your requirements.
DID YOU KNOW…
…that the average UK household
contains £35,000 worth of possessions?**
That’s a big investment; so why not protect it with Tenants Contents and Liability Insurance?
19.3 million UK households chose to protect their belongings with contents
insurance in 2018** – and you can join them.
At John Shepherd, we want to help you protect the value of your valuables, so we offer
Tenants Contents and Liability Insurance to give you peace of mind. We’re able to
present different options for you to choose from our panel of insurers, so you can

included, there’s less risk of you losing your security deposit due to accidental
damage of your landlords’ fixtures and fittings.

Is the cover on a new-for-old basis?
Yes – your policy will replace all items as new, aside from clothing, where a certain
amount of wear and tear is expected.
Can I have just contents insurance?
You can choose liability cover as a separate policy – however, you’ll be covered for
tenants liability as standard within your contents insurance policy.
Does each tenant take out a policy or does it cover the household?
Your policy will cover you and anyone living with you under your tenancy agreement –
but other tenants will have to take out their own policy if they don’t meet this criteria.
Do I have to specify all of my individual items?
No, but you may be asked to give receipts and photos of any items that you claim on,
so you should make sure you keep tabs on the high value items.
