Need some landlord tips?

To make sure that you get the most from your insurance, you need to make sure that you bear these things in mind when looking after your property:

Keep your property in good condition

Most policies expect the owner to keep the building, fixtures and fittings well maintained and in a good condition. For example, you will need to ensure that you carry out regular inspections of roofs and walls and regular certified testing of electrics, gas and central heating.

Damage caused by tenants

While a landlords policy will usually cover against malicious damage to your property, it will not usually cover you for damage caused by tenants. It is in your interest to make sure that you’re happy with the tenants you choose.

Theft by violent or forcible entry

When a loss occurs due to theft it is usually a condition of the policy that entry was gained to the premises through violent or forcible entry. For example, you would be covered by your policy if a burglar gained access by breaking a window, but if they simply walked through an open door you wouldn’t be.

Vacant premises

Empty properties are viewed as a higher risk by insurers. If at any point your property becomes vacant you should contact your broker, as not doing so may affect your policy.

Landlord insurance if you have more than one buy-to-let property

As part of Europe's largest independently owned insurance intermediary we are well placed to source you the cheapest deal we can as long as your insurance needs are met.

Advice for multiple property landlords

Being a landlord can be a highly profitable but often very stressful business. From the legal obligations involved to attracting the right tenants, there are many important factors to contend with. However, ensuring you are familiar with your rights and responsibilities is an essential measure and here we take a look at some of the steps you should take in order to become a successful landlord.

Financial protection: As a landlord, it is your responsibility to protect the building you own and the tenants who live there and, as such, it is vital that you safeguard your investment against a range of eventualities. You can achieve this with landlord insurance, which provides cover for damaging events and unpredictable expenses. Landlord insurance from YOUR Insurance includes cover for the property’s contents (those that belongs to the landlord), accidental damage, property owner’s liability, and employer’s liability.

Tenant screening: To avoid potential problems down the line, get to know your potential tenants by undergoing a thorough screening process. There are several steps you can take to feel confident that your property is in good hands, including running credit checks, seeking references from previous landlords, visiting them at their current property to inspect the state of their home, or running a search online.

Property maintenance: If a problem arises at the property that requires repairs, make sure you follow through on what needs doing. If it is an emergency see to it immediately, if not, arrange a convenient time with your tenants to come round and inspect the damage. Once you have done this, schedule the repairs as soon as possible, making sure you give the occupant notice.

Privacy: It is in your interest to create a good working relationship between you and your tenants. Treat them as you would like to be treated by respecting their privacy. As a landlord, you cannot enter the property when the tenant isn’t present, or without first gaining they’re permission. If you’re concerned that your property may have become damaged, give the occupant at least 24 hours notice before you make a visit.

Communication: Keeping open a solid line of communication between yourself and your tenant needn’t mean taking calls at all hours of the day. However, it is important that they know how to get in touch with you, both as precautionary measure and to make the tenant feel more comfortable in their new home. To avoid calls to your house, make sure they have your business number, as well as an email address you check regularly.

Vacant premises : empty properties are viewed as a higher risk by insurers. If at any point your property becomes vacant you should contact us (YOUR Insurance), as this may affect your policy.
