What does landlords insurance cover?
The best landlord house insurance policies will not only protect your property from risks such as fire and storm damage.

Do landlords need insurance?
Whilst house insurance for landlords is not legally required, a standard buildings and contents insurance policy will probably not give you the cover you need. If you need to make a claim, your insurer may therefore refuse to pay out. If you need a buy to let mortgage to purchase your new rental property, some lenders may also request that you have landlord house insurance in place as a stipulation of the mortgage.
Multiple property landlord insurance
If you have multiple investment properties, it is possible to insure them all under the one policy. Adding a new property to an existing landlord house insurance policy, can however cause the price of your policy to change. It is therefore important to check that you have the best deal for your needs, which our insurance brokers can gladly assist you in.
