The cover offered, particularly as a landlord, is outstanding. The cost is highly competitive and the reminders in advance of the renewal date are a great help. We have found that staff who answer the telephones are well informed, friendly and helpful. We wouldn't go anywhere else. Trustpilot, 19 September 2017
I had to change insurers when I started to let my property as previous insurers did not deal with landlord insurance. Very helpful and clear guidance made the process very easy, and very good quote. Absolutely essential firm to use if your property has had any previous issues such as structural problems, or is any way different to the norm. Could not recommend highly enough.
