There are two types of household insurance policies:
The Council is responsible for insuring its buildings. The cost of the buildings insurance is included in your rent if you are a tenant; if you are a Leaseholder or shared owner it is included in your annual service charge.
This is your responsibility and protects you against damage or loss of your possessions. The council provides a Tenants Contents Insurance Scheme that is available to the tenants of Folkestone & Hythe District Council.
To read more about our insurance scheme for tenants please read the Information document alongside the Home Contents Insurance Product Information pack.
You can email email@example.com if you have any further queries.
Folkestone & Hythe District Council does not insure tenants' furnishings or belongings. We strongly recommend that you take out your own home contents insurance. This will cover you against damage from fire, flood, break-in, vandalism or accidents related to belongings.
