Insurance details for leaseholders
This page contains information on who is responsible for insurance in your building and how leaseholders can make a claim.
What does Network Homes insure?
As your freeholder, we insure the structure of your home against damage caused by:
- water damage
- accidental damage.
Our insurance also covers the full reinstatement cost of damage to anything that is fixed within the property, for example:
- fitted cupboards
- sanitary ware
- laminate or hard-wood flooring.
We do not insure any of the removable items within your home. For example, your furniture, your personal belongings and your carpets.
We strongly recommend that you take out home contents insurance to cover your personal belongings.
