Home contents insurance for Council tenants

Renfrewshire Council reminds all Council tenants to take out household contents insurance.

You can do this either through this scheme arranged by the Council, or making your own private arrangements.  

Many tenants believe that the Council automatically insure their furniture, belongings and decoration 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. The Council makes it easy for you to insure your belongings under a special household contents insurance scheme. The insurance is arranged with AVIVA and is only available to council tenants.

For details on what is covered and how you can join the scheme, please refer to the policy document and application form.
