If you rent domestic properties, Residential Landlord Insurance can help protect your assets – from single properties right through to large portfolios.
The policy can cover not only the property itself, but can be extended to cover your contents, rent, and your obligations to your tenants. Residential Landlord Insurance can be arranged to cover either a single property, or a large portfolio. Even if you have business premises, we can arrange to cover commercial and domestic premises, usually under one policy. We can even arrange cover for unoccupied properties.
What does Residential Landlord Insurance cover?
As the property owner, your main concern will be insuring the buildings themselves. The cover can vary from basic ‘perils’ such as fire, lighting, explosion and impact from vehicles, all the way up to ‘All Risks’ cover, with extensions for things such as public liability insurance, tenants’ contents and even loss of rent. The size of the portfolio and the level of cover you choose will of course influence the premium you pay.
What level of cover do I need for Residential Landlord Insurance?
The sums insured under the policy should be based on what the property would cost to rebuild, rather than its market value. So, you should ensure that these sums are adequate.
Who pays for Residential Landlord Insurance?
Some landlords prefer to pay one premium for all of their properties with a common renewal date. Others prefer separate schedules for each property, so that they can make tenants responsible for insurance for the premises they occupy. Whatever your preference, we can find a policy that meets the needs of your property portfolio.
