Home contents insurance

We strongly advise all customers to take out household contents insurance. The Council does not automatically insure your house contents against fire, theft and flood, therefore, to safeguard your contents, we run an insurance scheme that provides council tenants with cover against fire, theft and flood, at the lowest possible cost.

What is covered by the insurance scheme?

The policy is new for old and covers most household goods as well as the contents of huts and outbuildings against fire, theft and flood with no excess to be paid on any claims (please refer to the policy booklet for full details).
