What is landlord insurance?

Landlord insurance covers the risks you face when letting or leasing a property. If the building or the contents inside are damaged, or you get into a dispute with your tenants, you could incur some hefty and unexpected costs.

Our landlord insurance is designed to keep your investments safe and will help get your property back up and running, should something go wrong.

What does landlord insurance cover?

Our landlord Insurance offers high levels of standard cover, plus options to increase limits and extend your cover if you need to. You also have the flexibility to lower your excess for a higher premium, or increase your excess for a lower premium, whatever works for you.

Do I need landlord insurance?

Your home insurance policy is unlikely to cover activity in your rented property. So, if you want to safeguard your income, it's important to obtain specialist landlord insurance.

Although landlord insurance isn't a legal obligation, most buy-to-let mortgage lenders will require you to take out insurance before your tenants move in.
