Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that council home contents insurance will come at a cheaper price. How much you pay depends on the value of your possessions, the size and location of the home you’re in and, of course, which insurance provider you choose.
Some councils may provide tenants with the option to take out contents insurance through them. However, don’t just assume that doing so will automatically secure you a great-value premium or the cover you want. It’s always worth making doubly sure by comparing content insurance quotes.
