Buildings insurance for leaseholders
The council arrange buildings insurance cover for leaseholders. This is normal, particularly for buildings divided into flats, as it is important there is one single policy covering fire and other risks which could affect the whole building.
Contact the home ownership team if you would like to request a summary of the building insurance.
Leaseholders are responsible for arranging their own household contents insurance. You can take out the contents insurance scheme arranged by the council or make your own arrangements.
