Home Contents Insurance

The council manages and maintains tenants' homes but does not insure tenants' personal belongings, household goods and contents. We strongly recommend that all tenants take out household contents insurance.

Many council tenants believe that the council automatically insures their furniture, belongings and decorations against fire, theft, vandalism or water damage such as burst pipes. This is not the case. Unfortunately, some tenants only realise this after the damage has been done.

How to take out Home Contents Insurance

Contents insurance can be arranged through any bank, building society, post office, local insurance broker, in person or via the telephone or internet.

The council has arranged a special scheme which is open to all tenants and leaseholders called the Crystal Insurance Scheme. Under this scheme it is easy for you to protect your belongings at a special low cost rate.

To ensure that you are always covered you must keep your payments up to date. Failure to do so could affect any claim settlement and will lead to the cancellation of your insurance.

Premiums can be paid:

  • fortnightly or monthly by cash, using a swipe card at any Post Office or any Payzone Outlet;
  • monthly by Direct Debit;
  • annually by Cheque, Postal Order or Debit/Credit Card. 

It is important not to undervalue your contents otherwise the insurer will not pay the full value of your claim.
