Rent guarantee insurance covers your monthly rental income if your tenants stop paying. You can usually make a claim on your policy once your tenants have fallen one month behind with their rent.

Some policies continue to provide a reduced level of cover for up to 2 months after you regain possession of the property to allow time for you to source a new tenant.
