What is Landlord House Insurance
Landlord house insurance is a specialist property insurance policy for either a single let property or multiple properties, typically where the property is let under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement.
As well as protection for the rebuilding of the property in the event of an unforeseen loss such as a fire or flood, our landlord insurance can be extended to cover the landlord’s legal liability (property owners liability) and potential loss of income following a claim (loss of rent insurance).
Does Landlord Building Insurance cover Public Liability?
The core protection of any buy to let insurance policy is cover for the building itself, providing indemnity to reinstate the property to its current condition in the event of a claim.
At Insync we provide a comprehensive landlord insurance package which includes Landlord Public Liability cover as standard. Our package is completely bespoke and allows you to add as little or as much cover as necessary for you and your properties.
We have created this package to cover most eventualities of what a landlord may encounter. Landlord Public Liability is just one of the things we cover as standard, it will protect you against injury and damage claims that might be brought by your tenant. Our Landlord Insurance will also cover you against accidental damage, legal expenses and tenant rent default.
Tailored cover extensions can then be added as part of the package to meet your specific requirements.
How much does Landlord House Insurance cost?
Every single Landlord house insurance quote is tailored to your specific requirements. Where the property is (post-code), rebuilding cost (sum insured), occupation of the tenant(s), claims history and experience as a landlord will all potentially impact the insurers individual rating.
As each insurer may have different rating factors it pays to compare several quotations or use a specialist broker such as Insync.
How much should I insure my Rental Property for?
A common mistake of many new property owners is to insure the property for the purchase price. In fact, the cost of landlord insurance needs to reflect the rebuilding cost of the property and this may bear little correlation to the price paid or current value.
In most cases the rebuilding cost will be less than the property value as you also own the land, however this is not always the case. Best advice is to seek a professional valuation from a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) qualified expert.
Landlords Claim example
Following extreme cold weather the let property suffers a burst pipe whilst the tenant is away for the weekend. They return to the property to find it completely flooded with the upper floor ceiling having collapsed through into the kitchen and lounge below.
Making good and reinstating the building costs the insurers in excess of £30,000, in addition to which further payments were made to rehouse the tenant whilst the property was uninhabitable and for loss of rent during the same period.
Landlords Insurance Extended Cover
In addition to buildings, you may require cover for any landlords contents, either in communal areas or for part or fully-furnished properties.
