Why do I need landlords insurance?
If you are considering landlord insurance quotes, you may be wondering whether you actually need this specialist cover:
- Bear in mind that you cannot use your standard household insurance. Such policies are designed solely for owner occupied properties and thereby will provide no protection against any losses which might occur.
- As a landlord your liabilities, obligations and requirements change significantly. Consequently you will need specialist landlords cover to cater for this. For example, you have a duty of care to your tenants as well as the public as a landlord in the event that injury or damage is caused to them arising from your ownership of the property for which you are responsible.
- Furthermore, should an insured peril cause the property to become uninhabitable, most standard tenancy agreements provide that rent is not payable under these circumstances. In such cases you will need loss of rent cover, something which standard household polices do not provide.
- If you have a mortgage on your investment property, your home loan provider will typically insist that as part of your agreement with them, you have adequate buildings insurance to protect both your interests.
All types of landlords require insurance for their properties. From the Investor who owns a single small flat, to the entrepreneur who controls a large portfolio of property, the chances are that a significant amount of capital is tied up in the property, and that a certain amount of income is expected. Landlord insurance typically can help protect you against losing your capital investment and essential source of revenue.
At Clover Insurance Services, our landlords insurance policies have been developed to specifically address the needs of landlords, whether it’s a furnished or unfurnished property you’re looking to insure, or you just want to cover the building itself.
