Ultimate Rent Protection

To help you sleep at night!

Our superb NIL Excess ‘Landlord Disaster Recovery’ policy ensures that you receive your rent, even if your tenant doesn’t pay. Legal Cost cover is also included.

What is Rent Guarantee?

Unfortunately, there are occasions when a tenant simply fails to pay the rent. A robust Rent Guarantee insurance policy ensures that the landlord still receives their rent, even if the tenant doesn’t pay.

The current economic volatility and unpredictability makes rent protection insurance an invaluable product. It not only ensures financial security for landlords but also can also help foster a healthier, less adversarial relationship between landlords and tenants.

Landlords without rent guarantee protection may be in for a shock! Those who do have cover can rest easy. For those landlords who don’t have cover, the implications can be awful, especially if there is a mortgage on the property and the rent is relied upon to help make the necessary loan repayments.

Our obligation to the landlord is that in the event that there are any defaults in the payment of the Rent (as set out in the tenancy agreement) by the Tenant(s)/Guarantor(s) within the tenancy, we will pay Rent monthly in arrears, as per the rent amount on the tenancy agreement, for up to 6 months or until possession is obtained, whichever is the soonest.

Payments will be made subject to any deductions agreed in the agency agreement. Deductions will also be made for any outstanding charges due from you.

In the event of payments being made under this guarantee, all of your rights as Landlord to recover such sums shall be subrogated to the Agent or their insurer in order to affect recovery of sums paid (in the name of the Landlord if necessary or expedient). By choosing this service the landlord confirms and agrees to the same.

Should you receive any funds from any Tenant(s)/ Guarantor(s) after any date of default which results in us having to pay any monies to you under the terms of this guarantee, you shall immediately notify us of such receipt and shall forward such funds to us immediately on receipt.

Landlord Insurance

Specialist Landlord Insurance

For complete protection

A specialist buy-to-let landlord insurance policy designed to meet your specific requirements for the unexpected.

Specific Landlord Insurance

Letting a property is a specialised business and needs specific landlord insurance cover.

If you let a property but just take out standard insurance in your own name, there’s every chance the insurance company will refuse to pay any claim and you will be out of pocket. Tenants these days are increasingly litigious, so you should be aware of your legal liabilities. If, for example, a tenant was injured by faulty wiring or tripped over a broken floor tile, they could sue for damages.

Our partners at Let Alliance have focused on developing a Landlord Buildings and Contents Insurance product that is tailored to meet your requirements, with innovative cover options that are not available with other insurance products. The inclusive benefits are detailed below. 

Watch the video to see Beth Holland explain the reasons why specific landlord insurance is so important.

Your mortgage lender usually requires that your property is protected with Buildings insurance. Even without a mortgage, it is extremely important to protect your assets from the unexpected like burglaries, storms or malicious damage by tenants.
