What is landlord insurance?
Being a landlord can be an expensive business, and if you don’t have adequate cover in place, it could end up costing you a considerable amount to put things right if something went wrong. Our investment property insurance covers properties that are rented to families or professionals where a tenancy agreement should be in place.

Is it compulsory?
Landlords' insurance isn't compulsory, but some lenders make it a requirement of taking out a buy-to-let mortgage. Building’s insurance is one of the main types of cover that a landlord will need. It is important because it protects the building in the event of a fire, flood or subsidence and covers the rebuilding costs of the property. The home, landlord’s fixtures and fittings on or in the home, walls, gates, fences, hedges, terraces, patios, drives and paths, that are listed in the policy are covered.
