Tenant and leaseholder information

We do not cover your contents as part of the tenancy agreement. So it's a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for in order to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.

Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. No matter how careful you are, there's always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind.

To help you decide whether home contents insurance is right for you, we have teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risks and Allianz Insurance plc who provide the Crystal Insurance Scheme, a specialist tenants contents insurance policy.

It can offer you insurance for the contents of your home including cover for items such as:

  • furniture
  • carpets
  • curtains
  • clothes
  • bedding
  • electrical items
  • jewellery
  • pictures
  • ornaments

We explain what condensation is and how you can reduce it. Remember: prevention is better and cheaper than cure!

What is condensation and what causes it?

During cold weather, the warm air in a property - from things like cooking, bathing and even breathing - holds moisture. When this moisture meets the cold surfaces in rooms, it changes from being a vapour into a liquid. This is condensation, and it usually occurs at night when temperatures drop.

What can you do to reduce it?

Here are three easy steps to reduce the risk.

Produce less moisture:

  • Dry your washing outside the property whenever you can. You can also hang it in the bathroom, keeping the door closed and the window wide open
  • Never use portable gas bottles or paraffin (flueless) heaters. These are not allowed in our properties
  • Permanently vent your tumble drier to the outside of your home, using a suitable kit recommended by the manufacturer of the appliance
  • Always cover pans while cooking and do not leave kettles boiling
  • Keep doors closed even if they have extractor fans

Ventilate to remove moisture:

  • When a room is in use, keep a small window or a trickle vent open. This is important for kitchens and bathrooms
  • Don't overfill wardrobes and let the air circulate freely inside. You can cut holes in the back panel of the wardrobe and move it 50mm away from the surrounding wall. If possible, locate wardrobes against internal partition walls

Insulate and heat your home:

  • Keep your home warm with insulation, draught proofing and heating, which reduces the risk of condensation
  • A constant, low-level form of heating is the most economical and reduces the likelihood of condensation

Antisocial behaviour includes:

  • playing music loudly, or at unreasonable hours but not day-to-day living noise
  • leaving rubbish in communal areas, or your garden
  • hate-related incidents based on race, sexual orientation, gender, disability, religion, age etc.
  • misusing or mistreating communal facilities

Children playing is not antisocial behaviour.
