Tenants are being asked by Direct Line home insurance to make sure they have contents insurance in place and also to speak to landlords regarding home security.
It makes sense for landlords to protect their property with security measures said a Direct Line spokesman, especially since it can help reduce insurance premiums. It is also prudent for tenants to have contents insurance cover to protect their own belongings.
Many tenants are surprised when they find out how little Direct Line home insurance costs and feel much happier knowing their goods are covered. With the added security provided by the landlords actions too that figure can go even lower.
