Rent Guarantee Insurance is a valuable insurance policy for many landlords who want rental income protection. Landlord insurance with rent guarantee and legal expenses is a perfect combination for any professional or residential landlord, providing cover if your tenant defaults and fails to pay the rent on your property.
The benefits of Rent Guarantee Insurance are:
For this insurance to be valid, your tenant(s) must have passed the relevant referencing process in advance. This includes proof of earnings and affordability, proof of ID and a credit check showing no CCJs in the last three years.
It is not possible to take this policy out once a tenant has defaulted.
If a tenant already occupies the property and you want to take out the policy after the tenancy has started, there will be a 90-day exclusion period before a claim can be submitted.
