Tenants insurance scheme

Hillingdon council does not insure the contents of your home. It is the responsibility of every householder to insure their own possessions, such as furniture, decorations and valuables.

Hand around a house

The cost of replacing damaged or stolen goods can come as a great shock to many residents. The council offers access to a contents insurance scheme with Aviva. We have negotiated very competitive rates and you can pay the premiums with your rent.

Key features

  • professional claims service
  • 'new-for-old' insurance
  • low minimum sum insured - £5,000 available for tenants over 60
  • those living in sheltered accommodation and £10,000 for all other tenants
  • spread the cost of paying your premiums weekly, along with your rent

Policy cover

The policy includes tailor made cover for a range of risks:

  • storm, fire, theft and flood
  • accidental damage to television sets, their aerials, video recorders, hi-fi's, home computer equipment, decoders and dvd players
  • accidental damage to mirrors and glass
  • wedding gift cover
  • visitors contents
  • theft by bogus callers
  • accidental damage to contents within the home
  • loss of documents
  • tenant's liability
  • cover for contents whilst kept in the home, outbuildings and garages
  • frozen food
  • locks and keys, and more...

Accidental damage cover

This policy gives you full accidental damage at no extra cost to you; providing you have accidental damage cover for contents, for example carpets. Limits and special exclusions may apply.

How to apply

If you have any queries or would like an application pack contact the rent account section.
