Home Emergency Cover is vital in a crisis, especially for Landlords and homowners. That’s why, our parent company, Alan Boswell Group, in conjunction with Intana, provides swift and effective assistance when a domestic emergency occurs. We offer landlords and tenants a reliable service, fully qualified engineers and a speedy, helpful response. Cover includes plumbing and drainage problems, failure of utilities, infestation of vermin and damage caused to external locks, doors or windows, rendering the property insecure.
We have worked with landlords and homeowners for more than 30 years and our Home Emergency Cover has evolved meet the needs of our clients. Many policies will limit usage of the policy and restrict what is classified as an emergency. Our policy provides wide cover, whether you are a homeowner or landlord with one or multiple properties.
