Why do I need Landlord Insurance?
Landlord Insurance provides cover for the building and any furnishings you have provided as a landlord. It can also protect you against loss of rental income and liabilities incurred if your tenants, their guests or other members of the public are injured on your property and you are found to be at fault. Add-ons can be included to cover you for accidental damage and periods when your property is empty.
If you employ staff of any description you are legally obliged to have Employers Liability insurance. Apart from this Landlord Insurance is not a legal requirement but it remains strongly recommended.
A standard home insurance may be invalid if your property is let to tenants. Some buy-to-let mortgages require you to have Landlord Insurance.
Landlords legal protection can be added to these policies to cover the cost of legal fees for things such as tenant eviction, tax disputes and criminal defence related to the policy
