Contents insurance for council tenants and leaseholders

About the tenants content insurance scheme

We have worked with Royal & Sun Alliance to create a contents insurance scheme that's just for council tenants and leaseholders.

Prices start from £0.51 a week for upto £4000 contents cover, and will depend on you postcode. The cost will also include a transaction fee.

The cover has these benefits:

  • the option to pay for the insurance weekly, monthly or yearly
  • no excess payable on any claim
  • no minimum security requirements
  • fast and efficient claims service
  • new for old cover (except for household linen and clothing where an allowance is made for wear and tear)

You will be covered for:

  • fire, lightening, explosion, storm or flood
  • escape of water and/or oil from any fixed water or heating installation
  • theft or attempted theft
  • riot or vandalism
  • accidental damage to TVs, videos, mirrors and fixed glass in furniture
  • freezer contents
  • personal money in the home
  • theft and loss of keys
  • damage to interior decorations
  • accidental death cover.
