What is Landlord Insurance?
Landlord Insurance policy can protect you, your property, and your tenants.
While there’s no legal obligation for landlords to take out insurance, you’re likely to be required to do so by your mortgage provider.
A good Landlord Insurance policy will also help to safeguard your financial future.
Which types of Landlord Insurance should you consider?
Alternative Accommodation Insurance
If your property becomes uninhabitable due to damage, your insurance could cover for your tenants to temporarily stay elsewhere.
Why do I need it? Your lease may state that you must provide alternative accommodation for your tenants should damage occur. Insurance will mean that you don’t have to take them into your own home, or spend money on alternative accommodation.
Building Insurance (Buy-To-Let)
Comprehensive building cover can insure against damage from floods to fires, and everything in between, even accidental damage.
Why do I need it? Safeguard against loss of earnings. If the worst does happen to your property, your tenant can pack up their bags and move onto somewhere else, but good luck trying to find a new tenant if you’re not covered to repair the damage.
This will cover any contents you have purchased for the property and declared.
Why do I need it? If your property is even partially furnished, the costs can soon add up. Just a washing machine, fridge/freezer, dishwater and a sofa later and you’ve already exceeded well over £1000.
This will cover you for any claims made against you for injuries caused by your property, including legal advice and representation.
Why do I need it? Accidents can easily happen in any business, but most accidents happen in the home – pair the two together that’s why liability cover is a good idea. Even if you have all the correct safety measures in place and are certain you’re not at fault, accidents can and do happen!
Loss of Rental Income
If your property is damaged and you are unable to let it for a significant period of time, your insurance could cover you for the loss of earnings in this time period.
