Landlord Buildings and Contents Insurance in detail

Landlord Buildings and Contents Insurance encompasses a wide range of covers, including:

  • Buildings Cover for rebuild or repair of your building following an event e.g. flood or fire.
  • Contents Cover for loss or damage to your contents within your property.
  • Loss of rent Loss of rent cover following your rental property becoming uninhabitable after a claim OR Alternative accommodation costs for your tenants due to your property becoming uninhabitable after a claim e.g. flood, fire etc.
  • Property owners liability Protection for landlords against their legal liability for personal injury or property damage suffered by third parties arising from your rental property.
  • Employers' liability Employers' Liability cover for cleaners, gardeners, caretakers and persons doing minor maintenance and repairs.
  • Unoccupied Full cover for up to 90 days unoccupancy between tenancies.
  • Malicious damage by tenants Full cover for malicious damage caused by your tenants to your property.

When comparing policies, make sure 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 you to have an Assured Short Term Tenancy Agreement (AST) in place, regardless of whether you are letting to your friends, family or strangers.

For landlords that have 5 properties or more a specialist landlord insurance for multiple properties is required.
