Our rent guarantee insurance includes landlord legal expenses cover. This comprehensive policy provides peace of mind for landlords when renting out properties, it covers rent protection in the event of a tenant defaulting and any legal expenses you may face for issues such as eviction.
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 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:
For this insurance to be valid, your tenant(s) must have passed the relevant referencing process in advance. This includes proof of earnings and affordability, proof of ID and a credit check indicating no CCJs in the last three years.
It is not possible to take this policy out once a tenant has defaulted.
If a tenant already occupies the property and you want to take out this policy midway through their tenancy, there will be a 90-day exclusion period before a claim can be submitted.
