Landlord insurance is not a legal requirement, however there are circumstances where you will be required to have it. Firstly, it maybe a prerequisite of a mortgage offer that you hold valid Landlord Insurance for the length of your mortgage.

Again our insurance experts will take the time to understand your circumstances and advise you of your legal obligations.
Yes, students and tenants on housing benefits can be accepted on to your insurance policy.
