I'm in the UK, needing to get some insurance for my possessions, and I'm getting confused by the terminology in trying to do so.
When I search for tenant's insurance or renter's insurance, I can generally find some results. Following the link through to get a quote invariably sends me to an all-purpose home insurance page (with the option to choose only contents). I've read somewhere that contents insurance is subtly different to renter's/tenant's (something about exactly whom it covers), but I'm just getting lost trying to figure it all out now.
In short then, as per the title:
Is there a difference between Tenant's, Renter's and Contents Insurance (in the UK)?
Having been home and had a look at the tenancy agreement, is seems to say that what I'm required to have is contents insurance, but with 3rd party cover on the landlord's possessions / furniture / fixtures / fittings (which is usually not included in standard contents insurance policies). Is this the same thing as liability insurance (as mentioned by Chad below)?
I'm still not sure if this is the difference, so any further info is still appreciated.
