Why Insurance is Important for Landlords

Landlords, need to ensure that their livelihoods or investments are properly protected against any risks and issues. This is true for both commercial and residential landlords.

Loss of rent insurance cover helps protect your income if something should happen to the property such as fire or flood, and will pay you the usual rental income whilst the property is being fixed.

There are other risks that landlords find themselves exposed to. Those who have bought a property and lease it out to tenants fully furnished, may want to take out contents insurance so that any insured damage can be covered.

These are just two of the types of cover that you will need to think about if you become a landlord. The important thing is to talk to an expert in the insurance industry and allow them to advise you on the appropriate policy to buy for your needs, and which helps protect your business interests.

About the Commercial and Residential Landlord Industry

In recent years many people have decided to become landlords and according to a survey carried out by international property consultants Savills**, the total value of UK landlord owned property has now overtaken that held by mortgaged owner-occupiers.

With this role as a landlord comes responsibility, for tasks including letting out property, managing the tenancy, maintaining the property, and of course making sure the rent is paid on time.

Commercial landlords may rent out workshops, office space or just a place for a business to call their base, whilst residential landlords generally work directly with the general public, providing them with a rental property that they can call home.

Being a landlord can be a great investment but it does require careful consideration, planning, knowledge of property legalisation, and of course insurance cover that you will require.

So, don’t become complacent about what insurance you should put in place as a landlord, seek advice and make sure that you have the right type and level of business insurance that you need.
