Buildings Insurance

This element of landlord insurance ensures that the structure of your property is covered. From damage to the windows, to the roof, it’s designed to make sure you’re not left out of pocket if the worst happens.

Things to consider: Never be tempted to underinsure. Your policy WILL contain an ‘average’ clause meaning in the event of a claim you may receive less that the cost of repairs. Ensure your sums are up to date and use the rebuild value NOT market value.

Contents Insurance

The level of cover is, obviously, determined by the extent of your furnishings. A fully furnished property will need considerably more cover than an unfurnished property which might only need cover for carpets, curtains and white goods.

Things to consider: A lot of policies will not include malicious damage by a tenant. Check with your broker in advance. Your tenants will need to insure their own contents separately.

Insurance for tenants

Tenants contents Insurance

Although there is no legal requirement for you as a tenant to have contents insurance, it is advisable to do so. Without it, you have no way to gain compensation for theft of or damage to your possessions. The level of cover is, obviously, determined by the extent and value of your possessions.

It is your responsibility to insure your own possessions kept at the property where you live, not the landlord’s responsibility.

 

Tenants liability insurance

There is no legal requirement to have this insurance as a tenant. However it could save you your deposit at the end of your tenancy. This insurance covers the cost of accidental damage that you may have inadvertently caused to the landlords property. This means that the damage can be repaired without you losing all or part of your deposit or having to pay for the damage directly.
