When comparing policies ensure you compare on a like for like basis, many companies claiming to offer cheap insurance will do so by limiting cover and increasing excesses.

Most insurance policies will have terms and conditions requiring an Assured Short Term Tenancy Agreement (AST) to be in place regardless of whether you are letting to your friends, family or strangers.

FAQs

  • Yes you can increase excesses to obtain a discount.

  • Yes, you can add and remove properties throughout the year. Our insurance experts will take the time to understand your future plans and advise the best products to fit these plans.

  • Whilst we would recommend referencing all tenants it is not a requirement of our Landlord Insurance buildings and contents products. If you wish to purchase Rent Guarantee and Landlord Legal Expenses then you will need to reference your tenants.

  • Premiums can go up and down and there are many factors that will impact this. As we are independent we are not tied to any insurance provider and will ensure you have the best value and quality products at each renewal.

  • Landlord insurance is not a legal requirement, however there are circumstances where you will be required to have it. Firstly it maybe a prerequisite of any mortgage offer that you hold valid Landlord Insurance for the length of your mortgage. Secondly if you directly employ a cleaner or handyman for your property or portfolio then you may require employers liability. Again our insurance experts will take the time to understand your circumstances and advise you of your legal obligations.

  • Yes, students and tenants on housing benefits can be accepted on to your insurance policy.
