What is Landlord Insurance?
If you’re renting out a property, landlord insurance is a good choice. It’ll cover you for any financial losses you incur due to theft, vandalism, fire and flooding, plus you can protect against things like breakages and spillages with optional contents insurance cover. Other optional extras are available, and we’re here to tailor your policy to suit you.
Do I need Landlord Insurance?
While landlord insurance isn’t a legal requirement, a normal home insurance policy wouldn’t cover your property if it’s being rented out to paying tenants. Plus, if you have a buy-to-let mortgage, your lender will most likely have the condition that you have dedicated landlord insurance in place.
When it comes to who pays for buildings insurance, landlord or tenant, this should be your responsibility – again, while landlord insurance isn’t mandatory, you should consider getting buildings insurance at the very least. In the long run, it’s a relatively small price to pay to protect you against potentially huge costs in the future.
What information do I need?
Before you can get a landlord insurance quote, you should know your property value as well as its rebuild value – note that these two things are commonly confused, and the rebuild value is how much it would cost to completely rebuild your property from scratch.
