Residential Landlords Insurance

Whether you let out a single buy-to-let property or have a large portfolio, we can help you find insurance to protect you and your assets, to help keep the rent flowing.

 

Why Insurance is Important for Residential Landlords

Residential landlord insurance is there to protect you and your rental property if something goes wrong.

It can help you to recover from a serious incident like fire or flood damaging or destroying the property, and protect your loss of rent while repairs are being carried out. Similarly, it can help to defend you and your reputation if you are held liable for injury or illness affecting the tenant at your property, and shield you financially if your property suffers malicious or accidental damage by tenants. Cover can also protect you if you have a period of time that your property is vacant.

About the Residential Landlord Industry

If you own and rent out private property, you’re not alone. Today, there are more than 2.5 million private residential landlords in the UK[1]. Around 60%[2] own a single rental property, while about 7% own five or more[3] – though those larger portfolios account for almost 40% of all residential let property in the UK[4].

But whether you are a single property landlord or own a portfolio, being a landlord is not without effort. There are many responsibilities – from finding tenants and ensuring they can live in a safe environment, to looking after deposits and making sure rents are paid on time.

So, while investing in rental property can be a good move, it does need careful thought. It’s important to know about any legislation or regulations affecting landlords and to carefully consider your insurance needs. After all, it’s insurance that would help to protect you, your finances, your assets, and your tenants if something were to go wrong.
