Are you aware that Southampton City Council offers a contents insurance scheme from Norwich Union (as June 1st - Norwich Union will be AVIVA), to both tenants and leaseholders? Some of our tenants still do not have any contents insurance or believe that the Council is responsible for insuring their belongings. This is not the case, every household is responsible for insuring their own possessions. Many of our tenants are now insuring their contents under the council run scheme. Our scheme allows you to spread the costs by paying for your insurance in weekly instalments, this can be paid at the same time as your council rent at your Local Housing Office.
The scheme includes:
• Fire, theft and flood.
• Accidental damage to TV’s, DVD players, video player, home computer equipment and satellite dishes.
• Replacement keys and locks for outside doors if your keys are lost or stolen.
• Tenants liability.
