Tenant Responsibility for Personal Possessions

Personal Possessions

Tenants must take reasonable care to protect their own possessions and consider the benefits of obtaining Household Contents insurance.

Personal items should not be left in communal hallways and passageways, or in bin storage areas where refuse collectors are likely to remove them

If you consider that the Council is legally liable for loss or damage to your property you must contact the the Assistant Director (Housing) in writing providing
• details of when and how the incident occurred
• details of the item or items damaged
• why you consider that the Council is legally liable
An acknowledgement will be sent to you within 10 working days.
