Landlords Insurance FAQs

Do you cover Housing Associations?

We cannot currently offer cover to housing associations. Unfortunately, Housing Associations are much more likely to suffer claims involving incidents with tenants and damage to property than private landlords are.

How do I minimise the risks when my property is unoccupied?

  • Inspect the property regularly
  • Ensure repairs are done swiftly
  • Remove all valuables
  • Seal letter boxes to reduce vandalism
  • Secure your property with high security window and door locks
  • Set the burglar alarm (if there is one)
  • Turn the heating on or keep it on a frost alert setting during winter
  • Switch off utilities

Can I cover multiple properties with you?

Yes – If you have a wide protfolio of properties, whether in one place or scattered around, we can look at getting them all the right cover.
