Home content insurance

We insure the structure of your home, but our cover doesn’t include what’s inside it (your furniture and your personal belongings).

Replacing the contents of your home could prove very expensive. By purchasing council tenants' home contents insurance your personal belongings will be insured against events including:

  • fire
  • theft
  • flooding/escape of water
  • accidental damage

We work with a major insurer to offer home contents insurance that can be paid in weekly or monthly instalments.

Unlike some insurance policies, there are no excesses so you will not have to pay anything in the event of a claim.
