I live in becket house, tabard st & have the unenviable task of sorting out home contents insurance. I am currently renting from southwark council. I've checked out a few websites but the information overload is a mindblowing! Think I may try confused.com? This is the first time I'm getting insurance so any help would be welcomed. Does anyone know how I can find out when Becket house was built? Many thanx...
Since I moved to SE1 3 years ago I've used Tesco & then Privelege as I got a discount for having my car insurance with them. Suggest you try 2 or 3 0800 or 0845 numbers from yellow pages as there can be a considerable difference in cost.
I recently renewed my buildings insurance on the phone.When asked what my current premium was I answered truthfully,the quote they gave was about £5 less.The next Co that I tried asked the same question,I said "Do you mind if I don't answer that question?" The guy said OK,and went ahead with the quote which was nearly £50 cheaper than the first.
This is the first time I've actually used this forum & it's nice to actually feel a sense of community in London. I moved to london about 8 years ago & have lived in this area for about 6 years. Thanx for all your help I'll post the results when I get a chance. Keep em coming.
p.s. does anybody know of any funding available to local residents to SE1? I'm a musician but being an individual doesn't seem to attract any help these days.
Depends what you want your funding for - if you set something up for the community, like perhaps music workshops, you may stand a chance, but you would have to get all the plans ready - like a proper business plan with every avenue covered and be prepared to do extensive book keeping!!
