Landlord insurance you can't afford to be without
Even with the best tenants, things can sometimes go wrong. Landlord insurance is important for anyone letting out a property - whether you are an investor landlord or an 'accidental' landlord - as it can protect you if accidents do happen. For example, if your property becomes empty as a result of fire or flood you would lose rental income. Or if your tenant caused accidental damage to the property or its fittings, you would be responsible for the cost of fixing or replacing the items.
Typical home insurance may not provide the right cover for you if you let your property out. Although specific landlord insurance is not a legal requirement, it is beneficial should the unthinkable happen. Because Marsh Commercial understands the challenges you face, the Finders Keepers' Landlord Insurance Scheme offers protection for:
accidental damage - including subsidence
contents - on a 'new for old' basis, including accidental and malicious damage
loss of rental income - up to a limit of 25% of the building sum insured or up to £50,000 for leasehold flats*
landlords' liability - up to £5 million per claim
unoccupied properties - covered for up to 60 days**
legal expenses - covers residential repossession*** property protection and tenants/landlord disputes up to a limit of £50,000
optional tenants default cover - up to a limit of £25,000 with all claims**** subject to a one-month excess.
