Unoccupied Property Insurance

Find insurance cover designed to protect your residential or commercial rental property, even when it’s standing empty.

 

Why Insurance is Important for Unoccupied Property

As a landlord, whether residential or commercial, you’ll know it’s inevitable at times when the property is unoccupied – maybe it’s being renovated or refurbished, or you’re simply in between tenants.  But did you know that most standard landlords insurance policies typically only cover your property when it’s unoccupied for a specified, short period of time?

So, if your property is likely to remain unoccupied for some time – whether by accident or design – you may need specialist insurance to make sure it remains properly protected throughout.

The right cover will depend on your circumstances, but may include buildings, contents, and a range of other insurances.

Standard Cover*

  • Buildings insurance.

  • Fixed glass.

  • Loss of rent.

  • Employers liability.

  • Property owners liability.

Optional Covers

  • Legal expenses.

  • Subsidence.

  • Terrorism.

  • Accidental damage.

WHY SHOULD I USE A BROKER?

Using a broker to arrange your insurance may help reduce your workload and the associated time it takes you to search for your insurance. It is our aim to help you get value for money therefore we use the strength of our market position to negotiate with insurers, in advance, the product and premium pricing. We do this to help deliver the right product, at the right price for our customers. To present you with the options available to you, we compare insurance from a panel of UK insurers so that we can recommend a product to suit your business needs.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A QUOTE?

You can get a quote by telephone. On average a quote will take around 10 minutes over the phone, depending on the complexity of the business requirements.

HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE I AM COVERED?

If you are arranging insurance on the phone, you can be covered straight away, subject to a 10% deposit. The remaining payment can be set up within 7 days. Be sure to let us know you want cover to start immediately. However if you don’t want immediate cover, you can specify a start date that suits you.
