Insurance for council tenants

We recommend taking out contents insurance as it protects the contents of your home, garage and shed if your possessions were stolen, damaged, or destroyed. As a landlord, we won't cover your contents as part of the tenancy agreement.

It's important to make an informed decision:

  • consider if you need insurance and to what level
  • shop around with comparison sites
  • make sure providers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

Corby area

We recommend Royal Sun Alliance for the Corby area, who offer a Simple Cover policy.

Cover can be added for optional extras such as hearing aids, wheelchairs, bicycles and personal belongings. You can also upgrade to a Simple Cover Plus policy which includes accidental damage.

Kettering area

We recommend Crystal Insurance in the Kettering area, provided by Thistle Tenant Risks and Great Lakes Insurance UK Limited, who offer a specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy.

Cover can be added for optional extras including hearing aids, wheelchairs and structures, as well as extended accidental damage.

Alternatively, call Thistle Tenant Risks on 0345 450 7286.
