Home contents insurance for council tenants

Have you thought about what would happen if you lost any or all of your belongings, for example in a fire, through theft or as a result of a burst water pipe?

For total peace of mind we can provide council tenants with a home contents insurance that can be paid weekly with your rent.

With no excess to pay on a standard policy, and cover on a “New for Old” basis on most items, can you afford not to take out cover?

How much does it cost?

This will depend on the amount you need to insure for. When considering the amount to insure you will need to work out how much it will cost to replace ALL your contents.

Cover starts from just 40p per week for £5000 cover on the standard policy.

Full accidental damage cover is also available from as little as 63p per week with just a £25 excess, and for an additional premium you are also able to add on optional additional insurance to cover your belongings away from the home, your wheelchairs or mobility scooters and your hearing aids. Full details of costs are available in our booklet below.
