Tenants contents insurance scheme

Can you afford to run the risk of losing your possessions?

Many tenants assume that the Council automatically insure their contents, and it is important to be aware that this is not case.

South Ayrshire Council operates a Home Contents Insurance Scheme, which now includes Accidental Damage cover at a small additional cost.

  • No long term commitment - you literally 'pay as you go'.
  • Paid fortnightly at your local Housing Office.
  • All postcodes included at no additional cost.
  • No excess to pay on Standard Cover.
