Why Having the Right Landlords Insurance Will Save You Thousands
Landlords Insurance IS NOT Home and Contents Insurance and most Home and Contents Insurance Policies DO NOT have adequate landlord insurance coverage. This means they will not cover you sufficiently for lost rent or damage caused by your tenant.
Whilst most tenants (if selected well) will look after your property and will pay their rent on time, things can go wrong even without bad intent from your tenant.
For example, your tenant has just lost their job and can no longer afford to pay their rent OR they’ve accidentally damaged something in your property and can’t afford to pay for the repair.
This is exactly what Landlords Insurance covers you for.
The list of items you should have coverage for is:
Loss of Rental Income – Protection from loss of rental income as a result of scenarios.
Contents – Protects those furnishings you forget, like curtains, carpets, blinds and light fittings.
Building – Protects your building against loss or damage caused by your tenants, their family or their invited guests.
