Insure items in your council home
How to insure furniture, carpets, clothes, jewellery and other belongings in your council home.
Why you need home contents insurance
If you're a tenant who rents, your landlord may not cover your contents as part of the tenancy agreement. It’s a good idea to consider what a home contents insurance policy would cover you for to help you make an informed decision on whether you need one.
Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind.
