The Alan Boswell Group Difference

landlord insurance rent guarantee and legal expenses

Alan Boswell Group appreciates the time and effort it takes to find the right tenant(s) and the need to protect rental income for the property. However, sometimes, circumstances out of a tenant’s control, such as redundancy, may result in a rent default. It is at this point that a rent protection insurance such as landlord rent guarantee insurance can make all the difference. Because we understand this, we have created a policy that caters to a variety of events.
