The S-Tech Difference

The S-Tech Difference

We appreciate the time and effort it takes to find the right tenant(s) and the need to protect rental income for the property. However, sometimes, circumstances out of a tenant’s control, such as redundancy, may result in a rent default. It is at this point that a rent protection insurance such as landlord rent guarantee insurance can make all the difference. Because we understand this, we have created a policy that caters to a variety of events.

Rent Guarantee Insurance in detail

Rent Guarantee Insurance is an important insurance policy for many landlords who want rental income protection. Landlord insurance rent guarantee and legal expenses is a perfect combination for any professional landlord and provides cover if your residential tenant defaults or fails to pay the rent.

Other benefits are:
