Home contents insurance for your council home

We are not responsible for the loss or damage of your household contents or possessions. We advise you to think carefully about making a plan to insure your household contents against loss or damage. This includes carpets, curtains and furniture.

Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc (RSA)

Who you choose to insure your contents is up to you. However, we work with RSA to provide insurance cover for our tenants where required. You may wish to consider this option if you do not currently have home contents insurance.

You can download RSA home contents policy for further information.

Cost of RSA insurance cover

You can apply for any amount of insurance cover, ranging from a weekly payment of 37p for a cover of £4,000 to a weekly payment of £2.80 for a cover of £30,000. You can find all these details in the application form. To decide the amount of cover, consider the value of the contents inside your home and the amount it will cost to replace them.
