Why do I need landlord buildings insurance?
Ordinary house insurance isn’t equipped to cover you. That’s why choosing a policy that is tailored to your landlord status is so important – it’s designed to protect you, your property and tenants against the unique circumstances and risks involved when renting.
It is your responsibility as landlord to protect and maintain the building and its fixtures and fittings. Take out a contents insurance policy to cover any furniture or appliances in a furnished letting too.
What does landlord insurance cover?
Landlord buildings insurance
Buildings insurance covers your home against losses from risks like fire, storm and flood. Buildings insurance covers not only the main building but also things such as interior decorations, fixtures and fittings, outbuildings, fences, etc. within the boundary of the property.
Landlord contents insurance
Contents insurance covers your household goods within the property, as well as non-permanent fittings such as carpets and curtains. Note that this doesn’t provide cover for your tenant’s belongings, they will need to purchase their own contents insurance.
Landlord home insurance key points
- Tenants are responsible for sourcing their own contents insurance (you will only need this if you are letting a furnished property).
