Contents insurance

Contents insurance

We insure the home you live in (ie the building), but you are responsible for insuring your own personal possessions against loss or damage. This could be vital protection if you have the misfortune to lose items through a fire, flood or theft, for example.

There are many insurance companies that will insure your belongings but, if you want to make it easy and avoid shopping around, we can offer a scheme that has been underwritten by Allianz Insurance plc.

Premiums start at less than £1 per week for standard cover and there are reduced rates for tenants aged over 60. You can pay in instalments and we will add the insurance premium charge to your rent account, so that the two sums are paid at the same time.

If you’re interested in this scheme, please read the ‘contents insurance‘ leaflet for more information. You can use the various price comparison websites to check how this compares with other insurance policies that are available.
