Low cost home contents insurance

When you rent a house from us, your rent payment does not include insurance. It is your responsibility to insure your furniture, belongings or decorations against theft, fire, vandalism and burst pipes.

We encourage you to insure your belongings, and can arrange home contents insurance for you through Aviva Insurance Limited.

For extended accidental damage cover prices start from:

  • 62p per week for tenants aged under 25 and tenants aged 60 and over for a £6,000 sum insured
  • 83p per week for all other tenants, for a £8,000 sum insured

For standard cover prices start from

  • 52p per week for tenants aged under 25 and tenants aged 60 and over for a £6,000 sum insured
  • 69p per week for all other tenants, for a £8,000 sum insured

Benefits


  • No excess to pay if you make a claim
  • All postcodes included at no added cost
  • Pay via standing order or weekly along with your rent or at any Post Office or Pay Point using a council swipe card. 

The cover is new for old cover, which means your belongings would be replaced as new, except for bed linen and clothing. They would be replaced at their current cost less an amount for wear and tear.

Apply


For more information download the home contents insurance application pack (950kb PDF)​​Link opens in a new window ​​​, which includes an application form and full instructions on how to apply. It also includes a handy checklist that will help you work out how much cover you need.

Terms and conditions apply – ask us for a copy of the policy wording. If you miss a payment the insurers may not pay a claim, and if you fall behind, we may cancel your policy.
