Landlord Insurance

As a Landlord you’ll probably know that normal household insurance just isn’t suitable for the risks associated with renting out your property to tenants. What you need is Landlord Insurance.

What is Landlord Insurance?

Landlord Insurance is a specialist home insurance policy for landlords when renting a property to tenants. It differs from a standard home insurance policy by covering additional risks associated with renting a property that are not covered in a standard home insurance policy. As you may know, even with the perfect tenants, things can still go wrong.

Landlord Insurance Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs

Is Landlord Insurance compulsory?

Landlord Insurance is not legally required and is therefore not compulsory although many mortgage providers require insurances as mandatory and some lettings agencies strongly encourage Landlord Insurance to the point where they will refuse to manage your property without it! However, even with the perfect tenant things can still go wrong which could potentially leave you out of pocket. That’s why landlord insurance is there to protect you financially against unexpected events that could otherwise cost a lot of money. Always refer to the policy wording for full summary of covers.

What does Landlord Insurance cover?

Landlord insurance should always have cover for buildings, which covers damages to the structure and any costs associated with the repair of damages to the structure that may come about. Contents cover is also available on landlord insurance which protects landlords against the cost of replacing any household goods and personal property within the home which belong to or for which you are legally liable for that may be damaged during the duration of the tenancy – this includes things such as furniture or domestic appliances. Other covers on a landlord insurance policy may include loss of rent as well as liability protection if your tenant is injured in the property and you are found liable.

What does Landlord Insurance cost?

The cost of a landlord insurance will vary from policy to policy depending on the size of your property, whether it is furnished or unfurnished, whether you rent to students and several other factors. When choosing a landlord insurance policy make sure that it meets your requirements to ensure that you are protected.
