Insurance

The council is responsible for your building insurance and part of your service charge covers this cost. 

Your building is insured under policy number 2019CP000109 with Avid Insurance Services Limited.

You must take all reasonable steps to minimise loss or damage to all insured property including keeping the buildings in a good condition and state of repair.

On the happening of an event, which could give rise to a claim under this policy, you shall immediately notify your insurer with particulars and proofs as may be reasonably required.

Claims must be notified within 28 days of the event in the case of damage caused by riot, civil commotion, strikes, labour disturbances or malicious persons, or as soon as reasonably possible in the case of all other claim.
