What is landlord insurance?

  • It provides buildings cover to protect your property's structure, fixtures and fittings
  • It could also include contents insurance to cover any furniture belonging to you
  • Optional cover is available on some policies for events like accidental damage, home emergencies and compensation claims
  • You may be able to insure a number of rental properties under the same policy

Why compare landlords insurance with

Specialist landlord insurance isn't required by law but many insurers will refuse to pay out on a claim if you don't have it. This is because standard home insurance policies might not provide enough cover for the risks you face when renting out your property, such as:

  • The cost of repairing damage caused by emergencies like gas leaks, break-ins and burst pipes
  • Recovering outstanding rent from your tenants
  • Compensation claims from tenants hurt or injured by an accident your property has caused
  • Loss of rent if an accident leaves your property unoccupied and you're potentially unable to meet your mortgage repayments

Landlords insurance could cover you for these events so you're not hit by any unexpected costs.
